What's the problem with depending on Perl? It's a useful scripting language,
used in a lot of packages, thus so many things require it that you'll be
hard-pressed to find a working system without Perl, especially an X11-enabled
one. For example, kdelibs requires Perl (it's used for things like
kconf_update), so any KDE system will always have Perl anyway.
