Or, I'm missing the large comment right above the License tag in the
spec file.  D'oh!

Some of the other perl packages use this same license without any such
comment, which makes me wonder if they have just copied the perl
license tag or if they truly need such a license tag:

devel/perl-Jcode/perl-Jcode.spec
devel/perl-Unicode-Map8/perl-Unicode-Map8.spec
devel/perl-Unicode-Map/perl-Unicode-Map.spec
devel/perl-Unicode-MapUTF8/perl-Unicode-MapUTF8.spec
devel/perl-Unicode-String/perl-Unicode-String.spec
