Is this the moment where src/usr.bin/perl should be mailwrapper
like?  Instead of searching the interpreter in some uncertain
location (and failing) shouldn't the program just believe in
what it was told by the admin?  Since the admin should know if
perl is installed and where it lives.  And which one to choose
should multiple versions be installed (for whatever reason).
