Well, PERL certainly works on a lot of platforms, but Sven was talking
about the supposed GimpPerl included in CVS Gimp. AFAICT Everyone just
types ./autogen.sh --disable-perl and hopes that sooner or later it
will go away. It won't work on my home machine (Slack upgraded to 2.0)
or my old work machine (RH 5.2) or my new work machine (RH 6.1) so I
guess it's not working for many people at all.

Of course, I know it's not a BUG that GimpPerl won't work out-of-box on
any reasonable system, but it's also not a BUG that GimpHelp won't work
out-of-box on fairly old systems.

/me goes back to fixing bits of Gimp HE thinks are important
