I'm trying to run mail/fetchyahoo on STABLE and 
getting the following error (wrapped):

$ fetchyahoo
Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: 
. /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503 /mach /usr/libdata/perl/5.00503) 
at /usr/local/bin/fetchyahoo line 1468.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/local/bin/fetchyahoo line 1468.

Line 1468 of fetchyahoo contains 'use bytes'. I searched pkg-plists for this
file and found it in more recent version of perl, than one that comes with
STABLE. So I guess I should install perl from ports. Is it my only option?
If so, it should be somehow indicated in fetchyahoo port (perl 5.6 dependancy?).

Anybody can win - unless there happens to be a second entry.
