'grep-changelog' is apparently the *only* thing in the current emacs HEAD
that requires Perl.

Would it be possible to put its build and install behind a configure
switch so that a variant of Emacs might be built and packaged that does
*not* require Perl?

(Yes, this is an odd thing for me to ask, but a co-worker is asking...,
and as the Perl expert, I'd like to know.)
