Looks like the Perl upgrade hosed your non-standard modules by
installing older versions in the default locations, so I'd start with
the Prerequisites list from mimedefang.org and ensure that you have all
of them at the correct version again, either by uninstalling the older
versions, or by reinstalling the newer versions, and then ensuring that
Perl picks them up first...

Ah the joys of automatic updates - especially automatic updates to
critical system components...
