Errr... normally yes, but it's not actually possible to install
perl-5.8.3 through the ports yet.  Latest version from ports is 5.8.2

There is apparently some problem with 5.8.3 which prevents the port
being updated, although the maintainer is working on it.  OP might be
better off stripping out the 5.8.3 he's installed and installing 5.8.2
through the ports (including 'use.perl ports').
