I have read that article before, and no I am not on an anti-perl
kick or anything. I would like to know why perl is used to
determine how easy it would be to replace with something that
has a better shot at being installed on every box that someone
might want to build apr on. For example, Cygwin does not
come with Perl so that would throw a big wrench in the
process of bulding apr as I would need to download and
build perl first.

How else would standards get implemented :)

When I mentioned the autogen.sh thing, you claimed
that it was fine to use ./buildconf and that you did
not want to change it. Submitting patches that get
ignored is no fun.
