As a site integrator, I find it obnoxious when packages rely on perl
for any part of the build or regression test procedure. (Regression
tests are valuble to site integrators as well as developers.) Python
would be much much worse, since it is much less universal than perl.

So, I strongly advocate sticking to bourne shell and C and make, as we
do for the rest of the build system. This has nothing to do with my
like or dislike of perl and python as languages.
