Details

The current Bugzilla documentation at http://www.bugzilla.org/docs/html/
says the following in section "4.1.7 Bugzilla":

"Lastly, you'll need to set up a symbolic link to /usr/bonsaitools/bin/perl for 
the correct location of your Perl executable (probably /usr/bin/perl)."

It is safe to say that not everyone is familiar with "bonsaitools" at the time
of Bugzilla installation/configuration. What is bonsaitools? Is it required for
Bugzilla? If so, how does it install/work? What if I don´t have it? etc.
This is a question answered in the FAQ section, but upon re-reading I realize it
could be better placed informatively in the description sections of the
documentation.
