I tried not installing perl, because I wasn't sure if I needed it, and am 
tight on hard drive space (400meg on a laptop).  I got stopped at the 
configure stage for autoconf-2.53 when I got an error saying I didn't have 
perl.  Noticed perl wasn't listed in the requirements for that package, so 
thought I'd let people know.

I'm not subscribed to this list, so if you could CC me on any replies so 	 
could see if this was received and used, I'd appreciate it :)
