Make sure when you update the ports collection by whichever method you
use, that the files not only get added/modified, but also removed.  There is
no files/ in the recent ports/lang/perl5.8, but you still
have one.

P.S.  I don't think upgrading perl will help with your original problem, it
looks like a pilot error to me.  Without knowing more details about what you
are trying to do, it is difficult to help.

We're going for 'working' here. 'clean' is for people with skills...
