Michael,
I'm fairly sure this is not the case.
Compiled SlimServer works fine with for example my iTunesUpdate which
uses an additional module.

Go for perl if you don't need the nifty SlimServer icon in your taskbar.

When you start using third party plugins you'll often need additional
perl
modules which are not available with the compiled version.

Hmm... but you do have perl installed on your system?
