After removing & cleaning up the macport packages (coreutils, etc), I installed git and downloaded the source and attempt to run ./autogen.sh

./autogen.sh: /usr/local/bin/aclocal: /opt/local/bin/perl: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

I'm not sure what believes perl is in /opt/local/bin? On my system (osx 10.6.6), perl is in /usr/bin

I have since created a sym link and autogen runs, but I wonder if you have any ideas about this?
