Perl and OpenWrt - where to the communities intersect?by morgon (Priest)

morgon has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
got me a new toy yesterday - an OpenWrt device(this one since you ask).
There is of course perl available and even modules are packaged, so you can e.g. install WWW::Mechanize via the package-manager.
But this is where it gets funny...
I've installed the perl-package and the mech-package, which pull in their dependencies, and when the install is done this fails:
Can you spot the error?
Yes - it's strict. You need to install yet another package if you want to use strict.
Now I don't believe for a second that nothing in mech plus dependencies uses strict which makes me conclude that the dependencies that are reflected in the package-system of OpenWrt and the perl-dependencies are not friends (they probably have not even be introduced).
Which makes me wonder:
Is the wider perl-community involved here somewhere as I would like to help out to fix this.
