Mandatorily mandatory.   configure will rightfully abort otherwise.

It's blatantly wrong: all Autoconf tools require Perl.

* Major changes in Autoconf 2.53

  Released 2002-03-08 by Akim Demaille.

** Requirements

  Perl 5.005_03 or later is required: autom4te is written in Perl and is
  needed by autoconf.  autoheader, autoreconf, ifnames, and autoscan are
  rewritten in Perl.
