Well, I see the following ways (well, some of them anyways):
1) Fix 1.38 p-5.005_03-[in]compatibily issues, shall this be clean
enough; that is, only apply a fix if building for -STABLE.
Alternatively, bug DBI guys about breaking p-5.005_03 and ask them to
fix this ;-);
2) Repocopy p5-DBI to p5-DBI-137, carrying 1.37 version, and use it
on -STABLE instead of p5-DBI;
3) Upgrade perl to 5.6 on -STABLE *grin*;
4) Require installation of Perl 5.6 from ports on -STABLE when building
