perl-Mcrypt requires perl-5.24.1, Tumbleweed has 5.26.1

This is for Tumbleweed as of 2018-01-04 and
perl-Mcrypt requires perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_5.24.1) but Tumbleweed
has moved to perl-5.26.1. If I were to force installation of this

However, devel:/languages:/perl has /perl-Mcrypt-220.127.116.11-143.27.x86_64

When the package was removed from Tumbleweed.
Also, it's very surprising that you see this issue only now, since TW moved to perl 5.26 in October 2017
