I really don't like the idea of putting a dependency on perl into the NetBSD.

Once you start doing that, you start looking at a LARGE number of shellscripts
out there and PERL-izing them, and before you know it its 'yet another flavour'
time where ported s/w doesn't work, getting some currency between NetBSD and
released stuff like Ultrix/STunOS etc dies...

If perl admin stuff is going to come along, can we start up a /usr/contrib
subtree and put it there? or /usr/local/etc?
