Why are you invoking this as 'perl commit-email.pl...' ?

The /bin/sh environment may or may not pick up the path to the perl
executable (it should, but there are no guarantees), especially since
the environment invoking the post-commit hook is not a real user
environment with a robust PATH configuration.

I'd re-write this as:

        /path/to/commit-email.pl "$REPOS" "$REV" cwu@deltartp.com

I'm assuming here that the commit-email.pl script has a #!/path/to/perl
line at the top. If that's not the case, then do:

        /path/to/perl /path/to/commit-email.pl "$REPOS" "$REV" cwu@deltartp.com

just to be safe.

Of course, to avoid this in the future, you may want to create a
env.sh file which has things like PATH and other environment settings
in it, which then gets sourced by each pre/post commit-hook script.

That way, you can configure all your settings once for all your
scripts (and, even make conditional decisions about the environment
based on which hook is sourcing it).

Just my sysadmin $.000002 :)
