hmm. maybe you built psutils by hand?
the top-level Makefile says

	$(srcdir)/TeX/config/mkinstalldirs $(prefix)/texmf/psutils $(infodir)
	( cd TeX/utils/psutils ; \
	$(MAKE) -f Makefile.unix CFLAGS="$(CFLAGS)" CC="$(CC)" PERL="/usr/bin/env perl" \
	INCLUDEDIR=$(prefix)/texmf/psutils BINDIR=$(bindir) \
	MANDIR=$(mandir) INSTALL=cp INSTALLMAN=cp all install )

ie this is where it explicitly says how to expand $PERL.
