The present framework used on 4.x (that is, mixing base system perl
with ports perl) is quite good. I've yet to run into any issues with
it on our 4.x boxes.
Changes will be made to /etc/make.conf by the installation script
to make sure that the base system perl no longer gets built/used
during make buildworld/installworld.
