Bug#681606: vim-runtime: perl syntax is out of date (missing s///[dualr])

Package: vim-runtime
Version: 2:7.3.547-3
Severity: minor
File: /usr/share/vim/vim73/syntax/perl.vim

The perl syntax file is missing at least the d, u, a, l, and r modifiers
for s/// that are present in 5.14.  Since Debian is currently shipping
5.14, it would be nice if the perl syntax highlighting highlighted those
correctly.  The github repository listed in the syntax file does contain
a syntax file with these lines handled correctly.
