In stead of doing all that manual work, why not set variables in make.conf?
The ones you're looking for, can be found by grepping 'PERL' 
in /usr/ports/Mk/

Most interesting being:

Also check if ldconfig lists libs in /usr/local/lib/perl5.
You will most probably still get conflicts having the old perl installation 
around or at least the /usr/local/lib/perl5 tree.

If you set the correct options in /etc/make.conf then do a portupgrade -R 
'p5-*' all your perl modules should then live in the new library directory.
