Did you read ports/UPDATING recomendation about how to update
perl dependencies ?
AFFECTS: users of lang/perl5.8
AUTHOR: tobez at FreeBSD.org
lang/perl5.8 has been updated to 5.8.8. You should update everything
depending on perl. The easiest way to do that is to use
perl-after-upgrade script supplied with lang/perl5.8. Please see
its manual page for details.
