I strongly recommend against using system Perl on OS X.  Once you've
had Apple switch out system Perl via Software Update in a point
release with a binary incompatible version, you'll understand why I
say this.

On that note, when distributing a Perl application via homebrew as I am
attempting to do here <>,
do you think it would be wise to build a version of Perl as a
dependency of the application?

That way there is no way that an application to could break if another
Perl version is installed/upgraded. The downside is that it takes up
more storage space. The PDL dev team takes a similar approach for
distributing PDL as SciPDL as a .dmg file.
