Sure, so comment them out. I'd really like to move away from the Perl
alternatives here, they had been occassionally broken as well, when
the package had a higher version than Perl...

I'm not really sure what the advantage of removing them wholesale on principle is though.  "Occasionally broken" doesn't feel like a strong argument - lots of things are occasionally broken, and then they are fixed.
