Perl is causing my machine to slow way down.

The activity viewer has it using up to 96% some times...

[G4Dual:~] joshua% ps 407
PID TT STAT TIME COMMAND
407 ?? Ss 324:10.67 slimserver

It's the slimserver.

any idea what it's doing, how long it might last, and is it normal?

SlimServer uses a fair amount of CPU when reloading the iTunes library
after iTunes updates it.

Does this explain what you are seeing?
