Clicking on that link leads me to a 14-message thread in which the
meat relates to Joe Stroud's problems with py2app, and there is only
one reference to perl:

Joe says: """No, I'm *using* py2app.  I've been trying to use it for a
couple of weeks now, with the generous help of such people as Robin
Dunn, and I still don't have it quite working pro*perl*y.

This doesn't appear to match the description. Perhaps the PSU has
subverted my comp)(*&^%$#@!
