I don't have perl 5.12 installed anywhere.

I don't have enough machines to say. It seems to install correctly on
my 7.1-RELEASEi-jc2 colo jail.

Repeatable that it doesn't work on my 8.0-REL amd64 box.
I've run a make update in /usr/ports, cleaned out the working
directory, redownloaded the source and tried to trace through the
makefiles to why it isn't installing. I can't see the practical
difference between pure_site_install and pure_perl_install but
pure_site_install isn't working on that machine...

It's a pretty clean 8.0-REL server updated to RELEASE-p4 with local
disk and a bunch of ports installed, nothing particularly unusual
about it. I don't have another 8.0 machine to test against, these are
just my pair of personal mail servers (the other being a 7.1 jail).
Have you tested on 8.0?
