#51134: vit broken by explicit perl dependency

 Here's the offending change:

 22 months ago, vit.pl was changed to use '/usr/bin/env perl5.16'. Vit
 depends on the perl curses module which implies p5.16-curses, but that
 can't be installed because it is obsoleted. The vit package was
 (rightfully) updated to specify p5.22-curses as its dependency last year,
 but the vit.pl file was not updated. New installs are now broken.

 Should vit.pl really specify a perl version at all? Why not just use the
 selected perl?
