The main reason for this is, as far as I can remember, that there is
no released version which works with current mod_perl. I can't remember
if there are also issues with perl 5.14 also.

The Debian bug report is

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=624578

Note that this bug meant it was not possible to build the package against
perl 5.14, which is why I worked on it (I was responsible for the perl
5.12 and perl 5.14 migrations in Debian), but I don't use embperl myself.

Unfortunately I think we're too late to get embperl back into wheezy
even if there was someone around who had the time and expertise. If a
release which works with current mod_perl and perl comes out, it can
be subsequently added to unstable and then added to wheezy-backports
after release, though.
