Perl probably doesn't actually need to be linked with libnsl.

Can be fixed by removing the references to libnsl in the configuration file appropriate for build architecture. e.g. feeds/packages/lang/perl/files/

Also seeing this in Chaos Calmer compiling for x86_64 target with eglibc

This issue should be fixed in CC/trunk since ef3ac53/perl-5.20.0-6 for all architectures. Please make sure your tree is current, and provide a log if the problem persists.
perl-5.20.0-6 in BB should also fix this.
