Did you try to build via cvs or from a tarball?

Interesting ;) Did you do a "make distclean"?

If yes, it would be interesting to get the output of configure 
("./autogen.sh >config.out 2>&1") and the "config.log" file.

Yes, the README.perl for example ;)

The only thing you need to make most of the perl plug-ins show up in your
menu is perl (5.004 is ok, 5.005 is better). But having more would be

You can have many plug-ins without perl ;)= Just not the perl plug-ins.

That depends on you. The gimp core is not at all affected by not having
gimp-perl. A few perl functions are, however, spread over the menus (i.e.
outside the Filters menu where most plug-ins reside), so if you use these
much (e.g. Layers/Stack/Reorder or Select/Triangle) you will miss them,
but most of these are not *neccessary* to use gimp.
