Yeah, would be a good fallback. But we have to be carefully

1. We had to check that "perl" is in PATH to avoid errors
2. We should print a Warning or Verbose message from 
   src/Configure to tell the user that we are just guessing

But beside these two points this would be reasonable solution.  I'll try to
create a patch for this idea in the next few hours for review.
