I wouldn't say that necessarily. There are a considerable number of Perl libs
that use XS, many of them use libs that are GPLed (e.g. GTK, GnuPG, Qt,
MySQL). Then you have all of the non-Perlesque licensed modules (e.g.
DB_File) that you'd have to worry about.
Could you do it? Probably. It could be complicated though.
