Those symbolic links will be created with perllink(1) in pkg's POST-INSTALL
phase. (see and {de,}install.tmpl in pkgsrc/lang/perl5/files)

perllink(1) doesn't seem to honor "MANZ". As a result all these
symbolic links are broken on my systems.

I feel it is not a job for perllink(1).
Who compressed man pages? and it should fix `.packlist' file additionally.
