I hope you mean never going to write perl, not to run perl programs. :)
Anyway, this is hardly important.

When I started to use automake and aclocal (6 years ago?), they were perl
programs.  autoconf switched from /bin/sh to perl for all its auto*

I see that autoconf-2.13.tar.gz (from 1999) contains too.
