For design tools there are:

	GUI Loft (Win32 only) - http://user.bahnhof.se/~johanl/perl/Loft/

	Glade-Perl (Gtk+ only) - http://www.glade-perl.connectfree.co.uk/

If you're just looking for a GUI toolkit (without the design tools) then
wxWidgets is gaining a lot of popularity:

	http://wxperl.sourceforge.net/		(Perl side)

	http://www.wxwidgets.org/		(wxWidgets homepage)

wx may also have a few GUI design tools, but I haven't checked.
