	use.perl has paths to many things hardcoded into it. a few things being the location of make.conf,
	manpath.config, and the installed perl binary. It should at least respect __MAKE_CONF, and a fix should
	possible be written to not assume ANY paths. I have no patch for this at this time, I will however consider
	writing one if the maintainer likes. He has been CC'd on this PR. 
	Set __MAKE_CONF to something other than /etc/make.conf and build lang/perl5.8, changes are not written to the
	proper make.conf
