They are no later candidatates for either testing or unstable
testing & unstable are at: libdbi-perl 1.35-1 (out of date)
testing & unstable are at: libdbd-mysql-perl 2.9003-1 (up to date)
I have a tarball for DBI-perl at 1.41
Main reason why I need to install libdbd-mysql-perl from source is to
compile it on my machine here and see if I get the segfault that the
binary dist gets.
