The daemon itself doesn't link against external libraries, as you can
observe with `libsensors', `libcurl' (for the apache-plugin) etc. So
only an perl-plugin would link against `libperl'. If you don't build it
or don't load it, you are not affected by this at all.

That doesn't matter either, since `fork' and `exec' are system-calls and
don't depend on any shell at all.

Be assured that I wouldn't accept code that pulls in hard external
dependencies ;) I want collectd to keep working on my WRT54GS ;)
Hope I could destroy your worries ;)
