Assuming you did not ran the `perl-cleaner` script after updating perl as the
ebuild told you. Otherwise reopen please.

I have not seen any request to run "perl-cleaner" during emerge. Please see the
attached log.

Run perl-cleaner as instructed to when upgrading perl and reopen *if* that does
not fix the problem.

I am a bit puzzled by your answers. What do you mean by "upgrading perl"? Which
package are we talking about? The emerge installed 2 perl packages before
installing gnupod:

[ebuild  N    ] dev-perl/MP3-Info-1.02-r1  53 kB 
[ebuild  N    ] dev-perl/Unicode-String-2.07  59 kB 

When should I run pearl-cleaner? After the last one? In any case there is no
clear indication in the emerge output of what to do here! So IMHO this is a bug. 
Please don't expect that every user is a perl expert.

I will not reopen the bug since you guys closed it twice but I sure think that
this ebuild does not work right.

You should run perl-cleaner after *every* perl upgrade. The problem you
described has zillion duplicates and all of theme are caused by *not* running
perl-cleaner after upgrading dev-lang/perl (see Bug 41124).
