I am the current maintainer of the fink package for bioperl. I have 
already submitted the new version (1.4) to fink a few weeks ago. 
Unfortunately, the powers that be have not yet put the package into the 
fink cvs, so it is not yet available. The fink team is currently 
restructuring the way perl modules get installed, and it seems that the 
bioperl package is on hold until this is resolved. If you want I can 
mail you the info file for bioperl offlist, so you can use it with 

- Koen.
