it is actually much less
but running it in the SDK is a hassle
(you need to move devkit perl away and fix all references)

that's what I have done:
you'll have to move away the dh_* files from your devkits
otherwise it won't use the files from the package.

You could also try the SDK+ based on scratchbox 2
which make it easy to use the host perl with
export SBOX_REDIRECT_FORCE=/usr/bin/perl
