- Perl packages never have more than 1:1 source archives per ebuild
- Perl upstream naming doesn't habitually use "perl-" as an archive prefix
- Everything that is packaged for Perl in Gentoo is mirrored to the
  Gentoo distfiles mirror, and this causes no issues.

So I don't think any comparison here makes sense.
