Dear all,

I wholeheartedly understand the problem. It is similar if one expected
TL to come with a C compiler just because there's a *.c file in one of
the package sources. And windows lacks some infrastructure that Linux
provides by default. That's how it is.

I reported that error because I did not know that the TL scripts would
use an independent perl be it that one is there. I was wrongly thinking
that the TL wrappers are somehow hard-wired to the perl in TL. But, as I
learned, that's not the case.
