I suggest other packages to be evaluated from this point of view,
too. At least ghostscript, psutils and xboard could do with options
excluding perl from dependencies:

ghostscript only has "", psutils quite a few similar
"fix*" scripts, and only such; xboard only has "cmail", which is
apparently for people playing chess via e-mail. All in all not
particularly useful to the majority of users, I'd argue...
