| 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

go into the port directory and :
make -VPERL5
This should tell you :
if not, you have to run :
use.perl port
You have to make sure also that you only have perl 5.8.5 installed and not
