R-alpha: Can we "require" 1) GNU make, 2) Perl -- for help "compiling"?

As for windows (I'm no expert though);
  perl is nicer than anything else and it's available on the mac as well.
  make is a bit of a moot point; all c compilers have a make but it is
  different and the whole notion of distributing patches etc doesn't
  seem to have caught on much in the windows environment so I don't think
  we should worry about it too much.
