Perfect System == Perfect Solution?

I had an interesting chat with me ol' mate Dave Lemphers today, who started as Microsoft's new Dev evangelist this week (Congrat's again matey).
We were talking about the .NET development community and Java's "open source" dev community specifically hitting on developer's coding mindsets and we struck on an interesting question.
Does creating the perfect system in a coding, software design sense, always equal the perfect solution for the client?
We as developers, are always looking to cut smart and efficient code (right?), but does it come to a point where it ends up being more about the system and less about the actual solution? Sometimes.
