We abandoned Perl 4 with the rest of (some would say "long after" :-)
the world a while back.  I think we do try not to require a bleeding
edge Perl (I personally write pretty vanilla Perl code, that being all
I've taken the time to learn.  And I think in the past we've made
changes to avoid brand-new features).  The path is computed by
configure; you can't use /usr/bin/perl as systems vary.
