Perl Path

I have just built a new server based on RHES4 and have built all the executables from source ie. perl, mysql, apache, php etc etc ...

When I built MailScanner I used the source and ran --perl=/usr/local/smartmail/bin/perl which installed all the modules fine. Though one thing I have noticed is that in the top of all the MailScanner code the perl path still points to /usr/bin/perl. I wondered why it wasn't working correctly ;)

Is it worth changing the install script so that if the --perl option is used then the perl binary path in all scripts is changed aswell ?
