Recent commits to lang/perl5.* ports made it impossible to build perl5 using
FreeBSD 11.4 and this complicates source upgrade path greatly: modern network
connectivity often requires support for modern TLS versions provided by the
port security/openssl.

It is impossible to build/upgrade openssl-1.1.1n without upgrading Perl
beforehand. We ought make upgrade path as easy as possible.

Please consider to restore FreeBSD 11 support for lang/perl5.* ports backing
out corresponding changes.
