This is a PITA on jails and other systems with minimal software and
strict disk limits. Applications using USE_PERL5_BUILD add non-trivial
time and overhead to installations and upgrades, then don't remove the
build dependency afterwards. Most of these apps don't even appear to
need Perl but for an operation or two that could have been done in a BASE
language like awk or sh.
Anyone know of a workaround, I mean other than manual pkg_delete?
