I just looked at a few other perl scripts and they're also using
/usr/bin/perl (e.g. start-stop-daemon, smailconfig etc.). I think
/usr/bin/perl is ok for all packages which are not necessary while /usr
is not mounted.

And if I remember correctly we had similar discussion months ago and
the result was that perl should be part of the base system (that
means no additional "DEPENDS: perl" lines).
