Based on how low it is on the rankings compared to other languages I'd say not many.

I have no data to back this up other than my anecdotal personal experience but I'd wager Perl hackers who use Homebrew never use it to install Perl.

Most of the classic Perl documentation walks you through installing from source, which is quite easy, and modern documentation/tutorials usually refer to perlbrew.

The Perl community often has established solutions within their own ecosystem, and this makes them seem like they have a smaller presence then the otherwise would have.
