I would be pleased if there were a message after ./configure that

Some errors occured during ./configure.  If you would like to use the
perl plugins you will need to upgrade the following packages from the
CPAN archive

package etc...

Then provide the URL to the CPAN site so folks who don't know what is
can find it.

Might also be cool to list the command for configuring without the perl
stuff that way the user has a choice.

I'm the type who will go and find the modules and install them to get
the full power of the GIMP.
