The question should be: will EVERYONE need that at least once? The answer is
clearly no with cron. I don't use cron. The earlier debate about perl is
clearly YES. Everyone needs perl once. I tried not to install perl. It's
impossible. There's always something that needs perl. So, since you're gonna
need it along the way, you'd better install it the right way, the LFS way.
