It is not exactly because texi2any.pl uses "#! /usr/bin/env perl",
texi2any.pl need to use something that works in most cases to be
launchable without being configured, and "#! /usr/bin/env perl" is the
best for that case.  So keeping "#! /usr/bin/env perl" in texi2any.pl is
best, even though, if it doesn't work on windows, it is a problem, but I
belive the problem should be solved by making "#! /usr/bin/env perl"
work, as we have no better way.

The real but is that texi2any.pl should never be called directly, it
should always be called like ${PERL} texi2any.pl with ${PERL} detected
by configure.  I'll try a fix.
