Another thing I noticed but didn't say was that the top-level
Makefile seems to think without NO_PERL the way to regenerate
perl/perl.mak is to run perl/Makefile.PL, which is not true if the
build is done with NO_PERL_MAKEMAKER.

I do not offhand know why we even need to have dependency on
perl/perl.mak in the toplevel Makefile (other than "otherwise nobody
descends into perl/ and run make in it", which is a bogus
reason---there should be a rule to run "$(MAKE) -C perl/ $@" when
doing "make all" at the top-level if that is the case), but I think
at least the duplicated rule in the toplevel Makefile should read
something like:

        perl/perl.mak: ... (the dependencies) ...
                $(QUIET_SUBDIR0)perl ... (make variables) ... perl.mak

so that the real knowledge of how to rebuild it (with or without
NO_PERL_MAKEMAKER) should be in perl/Makefile.
