I have two recommendations.

One on a book: *Perl Medic: Transforming Legacy Code (Addison wesley)*, 
which is a good reading and full of advices, regarding your and many 
oither problems in legacy code.

The other is of course, use perl. I did it on a very large code base of 
C/C++, which contained a lot of obsolete h files, pre-processor 
#defines, unused variables and such.

Since "only Perl can parse perl", I do not think that a lint -tool for 
Perl was ever written, but perl itself can  be used.

If there is a specific module was written, I'd love to hear.
