cpanminus: mark as broken
cpanminus is currently responsible for about half of the autobuilder failures, due to the missing dependency on host-qemu. However, even with the host-qemu proposed by Arnout, cpanminus will still not work properly: it will try to execute on the build machine executables built for the target. While qemu is here to emulate the instruction set, there is still the unsolved problem of kernel headers version mismatch between the target and the build environments. So the whole approach that consists in using host-qemu for building simply cannot work properly, and until it is solved, the package should be marked as broken.
