Link /usr/local/bin/perl to /usr/bin/perl (ln -s /usr/local/bin/perl 
/usr/bin/perl); type1inst assumes that /usr/bin/perl exists which is not 
true, at least for 5.4-STABLE, when rebuilding KDE3.

(I'm responding to this since I ran into the same problem, but didn't find 
an answer in Google or by scanning the ports and ports-bugs mailing
