Dear FreeBSD,

   The following happens to me A LOT:

--->  Installing the new version via the port
===>  Installing for perl-5.8.8
===>   Generating temporary packing list
** Missing pkg-descr for perl-5.8.8.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /data/ports/lang/perl5.8.
*** Error code 1

    Many ports fail to install for this "Missing pkg-descr" reason.

    Why is this happening?  Any fix?
