I used the basic from /usr/ports/UPDATING and enhanced it a bit:
# lang/perl5.8 has been updated to 5.8.5. you should update everything
# depending on perl, that is :
# 1. upgrade your perl5.8 installation.
# 2. run "use.perl port", so that the system knows you have 5.8.5.
# 3. run some magic incantations to upgrade all ports depending on perl,
# that is run something like:
portupgrade -f `(pkg_info -R perl-5.8.5 |tail +4; find
_perl/5.6.1 -type f -print0 | xargs -0 pkg_which -fv | sed -e '/: ?/d'
# This is likely to fail for a few ports, you'll have to upgrade them
A short cut is the longest distance between two points.
