Sorry, but I am afraid that if you insist on not using Perl modules
installed via ports this means you cannot expect any ports depending on Perl
modules to work.
It might be fixable in this particular instance (did you provide a patch in
your PR? thought so...), but you cannot expect it to work in general.
We're going for 'working' here. 'clean' is for people with skills...
