It's because perl is grafted: perl-5.26.1 is still used for building
packages, but then after everything is built, references to perl-5.26.1
are replaced with references to perl-5.26.2 by grafting.

The problem we're having with grafting perl is that grafting can only
rewrite a single component of the referenced filenames, namely the
directory name within /gnu/store.  In the case of perl this is not
enough because the precise Perl version number is included in
subdirectory names as well.

Commit 44b98b00026e62766620dbc4330a305282d61069 attempts to fix the
problem by installing a symlink $OUT/lib/perl5/5.26.1 in the perl-5.26.2
directory, and that certainly fixed many problems.

The problem here with p04a is that there's a second symlink that we
need: $OUT/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.26.1, and possibly a third for

I'm testing a patch now and will push it soon.
