HOWTO: run portupgrade with original options for perl5.8

I run openwebmail which wants perl compiled -DENABLE_SUIDPERL
However, when I portupgrade perl, this option is apparently not reused, and
openwebmail fails until I recompile perl.
I note that there is no entry for perl in /var/db/ports (i.e. no "options" are
I also note that the /options that are present for other ports contain the
# This file is auto-generated by 'make config'.
# No user-servicable parts inside!
and when I run make config from /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8 I get
===> No options to configure
So the question is: How do I get portupgrade to remember the options I used
when I compiled perl?
