By default, MailScanner will always use /usr/bin/perl. But anything that
looks for perl in your path may well pick up /dcs/bin/perl. Having these
2 different is very dangerous and the cause of a whole host of problems.
Consider replacing /usr/bin/perl with a link to /dcs/bin/perl. And who
put perl in /bin? It doesn't belong there.
