Package: lintian
Version: 2.5.52
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainers,
the mentions-deprecated-usr-lib-perl5-directory check show an
example to add in debian/rules that uses a misspelled Perl
function that gives an error:

$ perl -MConfig -wE'say substring($Config{vendorarch},1)'
Undefined subroutine &main::substring called at -e line 1.

The right spelling would be substr (patch attached at the end).
