Well, the user will need perl once they call clean, as it then has to
be regenerated.
If it's something someone working from the .tar.gz with minimal build
dependencies should not need to rebuilt (assuming no files are changed),
then it is rather a task for maintainer-clean (i.e.  MAINTAINERCLEANFILES).

Well, the dependencies of that file already force recreation if anything
in the nls directory changes (which is already quite a almost too easy
triggering condition).
