This package FTBFS with perl 5.18:

make[2]: Entering directory
`/build/dom-profphd_1.0.39-1-i386-9pRZV8/profphd-1.0
.39/src/prof'

Please ask [email protected] if you need help with preparing
or testing a change; if you have a suitable test i386 system you can
install perl 5.18 by adding experimental to your sources as well as the
repository at <http://people.debian.org/~dom/perl/test/perl-5.18.0/>

You can also find more about the perl 5.18 transition, which we hope
to start this week[1], at <http://bugs.debian.org/712615>.

Thanks for your work!

Cheers,
Dominic.
