Could it be that you had a perl pulled in via macport, and you removed
it but it was still in the shell hash table ?
iow: if you remove the link, open a brand new terminal windows and run
autogen.sh there, do you still have the problem ?

other possibility. when you use ./autogen.sh, without any parameters,
it'll try to re-use the parameters you use during the last autogen.sh
(see autogen.lastrun)
if you want to make sure that you run an autogen without any parameter you need
./autogen.sh --
or rm autogen.lastrun  then  autogen.sh
if your previous autogen.sh run contained --with-perl-home= you would
pick it up again...
