I've updated my copy of the port to AWStats 6.1, changing nothing more
than the minimum neccessary. I've created a patch[1] and tarball[2].

Note comment in CVS[3]. Caveat emptor, etc. It works for me[4] with 5.8.4.

# pkg_info -I perl-* awstats-*
awstats-6.1         Free real-time logfile analyzer to get advanced web statist
perl-5.8.4          Practical Extraction and Report Language
# /usr/bin/perl -v | egrep '^This is perl'
This is perl, v5.8.4 built for i386-freebsd-64int
