Everything should be using /usr/bin/perl (perl has never AFAIK been in
/bin, on any system I've used).  The only case I would think /bin/perl
would happen is if some software install script tried to be "smart" and
change the shebang line, and it searched in common directories but not
in $PATH order (starting with /bin).

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
