Have you followed these instructions found in /usr/ports/UPDATING ? (cut and
paste from a -CURRENT system, but I think they also apply to 4.X installs)

  AFFECTS: 5.2-CURRENT users who started with a 5.2-RELEASE or older.

  Change the default version of perl to 5.8.

  1) Force perl-5.6.1 to be upgraded with perl-5.8.
        portupgrade -o lang/perl5.8 -f perl-5.6.1_15

  2) Update all p5-* modules.
        portupgrade -f p5-\*

  AFFECTS: users of lang/perl5.8

  lang/perl5.8 has been updated to 5.8.4. you should update everything
  depending on perl, that is :
    * first, upgrade your perl5.8 installation.
    * run "use.perl port", so that the system knows you have 5.8.4.
    * now, run some magic incantations to upgrade all ports depending on
      that is run something like :
      portupgrade -f `(pkg_info -R perl-5.8.4 |tail +4; \
        find /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.2 -type f -print0 \
        | xargs -0 pkg_which -fv | sed -e '/: ?/d' -e 's/.*: //')|sort -u`
      This is likely to fail for a few ports, you'll have to upgrade them
