I'm planning to update our default perl installation to
lang/perl5.10.  But we are approaching 7.3-RELEASE, we should not so

(1) Submit a patch to change default version to 5.10.1 to portmgr@ to
    run -exp build.
(2) With these logs, fix problems as much as we can.  Minor fixes
    should be committed (with feature safe tag).
(3) After 7.3-REL released, commit changes switching to 5.10.1.
