Packages and dependencies...

This is a brand new system that was installed and CVSup'd yesterday
(late EST), and so there really aren't any ports installed yet.
When I went to build amavisd-new via "make package-recursive" this
problem occured. So is it that the port itself isn't up-to-date (the
one generating the error), or?
I will keep reading the UPDATING file, but I am not sure how that
applies here to a new system with nothing installed.
I found this:
AFFECTS: users of lang/perl5 and lang/perl5.8
AUTHOR: tobez at FreeBSD.org
lang/perl5 has been updated to 5.6.2, and lang/perl5.8 has been
updated to 5.8.6. you should update everything depending on perl, that
* first, upgrade your perl installation (use either lang/perl5 or
lang/perl5.8, the latter being recommended);
* for FreeBSD 4.X, run "use.perl port", so that the system knows you
have 5.8.6 or 5.6.2; this step is not needed on FreeBSD 5.X and
* run some magic incantations to upgrade all ports depending on perl,
that is run something like :
portupgrade -f `(pkg_info -R perl-5\* |tail +4; \
find /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.. -type f -print0 \
| xargs -0 pkg_which -fv | sed -e '/: ?/d' -e 's/.*: //')|sort -u`
This is likely to fail for a few ports, you'll have to upgrade them
afterwards by hand.
