Fix generation of perl/perl.mak

The code generating perl/Makefile from Makefile.PL was causing trouble
because it didn't considered NO_PERL_MAKEMAKER and ran makemaker
unconditionally, rewriting perl.mak. Makemaker is FUBAR in ActiveState Perl,
and perl/Makefile has a replacement for it.

Besides, a changed is *NOT* a reason to rebuild all the perl scripts,
so remove the dependency too.
