These 2 files are left :
"equery -b ..." lists no package for both.
Looks like a cosmetic issue, isn't it ?
Well, these files should be removed by the ebuilds. But I don't have a solution,
because the path depends on the perl version used while installing.
One idea is to move them to /etc/perl.
I have the same "issue". I saw them reported by "perl-cleaner all". Because they were from old perl versions I removed them and upgraded perl. Now, they are back. Could perl-cleaner be made quiet in these cases?

Hi there, I have a hassle in that the upgrade to 5.16 goes ok,but If I use perl-cleaner,it removes perl 5.16,or at least any any logs that it is on my system.
This isn't a one off problem ,it's happened to me on 3 occasions,on different machines and processors. My work around at present is not to use perl-cleaner,but just reemerge the asked for modules as ebuild failure occurs.
could some one have a look at perl-cleaner and see what the problem is,and remedy same. as its a pain in the you know where.

I don't see how your problem is related to this bugreport.
Please open your own bugreport! If you do, please add the output of perl-cleaner --all -p and also emerge --info. Then we can try to help.
Can you please reproduce this bug for perl-5.16 (current stable). If so, please reopen bug.
Same problems for me on update from 5.18.2-r1 to perl-5.20.1. The /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.18.2/XML/SAX/ParserDetails.ini is left.
The reporter of bug 509096 describes same problems. Thanks in advance!
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=509096#c8 This sugggests its invulnerable to what version of perl you use., and this is probably a partial dup of that bug.
