>Maybe it's a dep for another package? This is likely the reason. I would imagine more people use things written in Perl rather than Perl itself as a programming tool.

Also, Perlbrew is not necessarily easier, simply because having one package manager manage your packages is better than having many package managers (cargo, npm, gem, etc). It suggests that maybe there should be a package manager for all these package managers... I'd personally want to use the simplest way possible to install something unless I had a reason.
