Hmmm, but in the current (released) book there's no difference.  Compare{5,6}/perl.html. 
With Alex's restructuring the full information on each package is only
given in Chapter 6, which seems sensible, seeing as that's what installs
the final contents of each package.  Chapter 5 pages currently contain
just the SBUs, download locations and installation instructions, which I
must admit I rather like.
