Cyrus IMAP server install problem with Perl 5.8.5

I'm attempting to install the Cyrus IMAP port on a system with the Perl 
5.8.5 port installed. The CYRUS::IMAP modules insist on installing into 
the system perl 5.6.1 system rather than perl 5.8.5 (after ensuring that 
I've done a 'use.perl port' to switch to the 5.8 version)

Looking through the port's bug log , this issue has been dealt with last 
year when the solution of 'add --with-perl=${PERL5}' was added to the 
port's makefile. That solution is in the port's Makefile on my system 
but the perl modules are still installing into the wrong version of Perl.

I've been attempting to modify the makefiles but so far haven't come up 
with a solution yet. Does anyone know how this might be done?

Software versions:

 - cyrus-imap22   (/usr/ports/mail/cyrus-imap22, README.html indicates 
version = cyrus-imapd-2.2.2.b_1, cyrus version = 2.2.8 2004/07/29)
 - perl5.8  (/usr/ports/lang/perl5.8, version = 5.8.5)
 - FreeBSD 5.2.1 RC
