man is broken and use.perl script shows the problem

It turns out that if there are too many entries in /etc/manpath.config
man will core dump. I sent a trace of this already. I had done one too
many portupgrade -f that included perl. The use.perl script blindly
adds additional lines
# -- use.perl generated line -- #
and I ended up with a bunch of these. You can reproduce the problem by
simply adding enough duplicates of these lines into /etc/manpath.config.
use.perl does the same thing with /etc/make.conf but at least in that
case it is harmless.
