% kvirc

/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libperl.so" not found, required by "kvirc"

perl is installed and the library is located at: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.9/mach/CORE/libperl.so

Install irc/kvirc-devel from ports

run kvirc

# cd /usr/local/lib && ln -s /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.9/mach/CORE/libperl.so

After this, kvirc starts correctly.

Either the perl port does the symlink or kvirc links to the correct path or add the path to ld.
