Hi All,

Back over in FreeBSD 4.x-land, I've now developed a complete set of 
patches (modulo one piece of code - src/usr.bin/sockstat) that allows 
for the complete removal of contrib/perl (aka perl-5.005_03) from the 
base system -- ie: buildworld/buildkernel/installworld/installkernel 
works, does the right thing, no perl present in the base.

Obviously, some of the work I've done will need to be recoded for the 
slight differences between FreeBSD and DragonFlyBSD userland, but 
before I go ahead and do this, is there any interest here for doing
