OK, there's no problem with the debian request-tracker3 package then.

My system was definitely up to date (there are a few gnome packages 
being held back right now, but nothing else), and I could swear I 
manually checked the version in the installed Maketext.pm, but I must 
have made a mistake.

I eventually found that my main problem was that I have the same 
instance of Apache running Movable Type, which comes with its own rather 
aged pre-packaged perl module dependencies, including Locale::Maketext, 
which overrode the version provided by the perl-modules package.

P.S.  Part of the Movable Type setup involved the following config block 
to get perl to find MT's private versions of the perl modules: <Perl>use 
lib 'blah';</Perl>.  So I either needed to give RT and MT separate @INC 
variables somehow, or get all of MT's dependencies installed properly, 
or put MT's directories at the end of @INC instead of at the beginning, 
as 'use lib' does.  Temporarily I have replaced "use lib 'blah'" with: 
"BEGIN {push @INC, 'blah';}, and that is working for me.
