False positive perl leftovers

For the longest time, I've noticed a number of issues with false-
positive leftovers relating to /usr/bin/perl and /usr/bin/perl5 being
"missing" as part of the mtree check after a single package build.
I'm not sure what the underlying cause is yet -- possibly some weird
interaction between tinderbox's removal of packages, and the use.perl
script that's part of the perl port.
In the interests of my own sanity, I added the following as line 169
/bin/rm -f /usr/bin/perl /usr/bin/perl5 # XXX: ugly hack to fix
Wondering if this should be included in the actual code itself, rather
than being a local hack -- I've reproduced it on a variety of
hardware, package builds, architectures, and OS versions, so I'm
pretty such it's not specific to me.
