Like others i think there is something amis with your dependency
tracking. That list is way too long with way too many oddities, for
instance Data::Dump has no dependencies at all, so how could
perl-Data-Dump have a dependency.

Also, as a matter of some importance please put ExtUtils::Install into
your list. Installing ExtUtils::MakeMaker without ExtUtils::Install is
not a good idea from the POV of the toolchain. (EU:I was split out of
EUMM to make it possible to have different maint cycles, and EUMM and
EUI are critical component of the perl build process.)
