That is doable. We can do this in at least two ways:
- put all pure-perl modules in a directory of gnucash, and tell so to
perl on the command line. This will also be most 'os-independent'
- make a packaged file which includes perl and the modules. this can
only be done os-dependently

other ideas ?
