perl - xml problem

I wanted to upgrade my ports on a 4.9 machine. This includes gnome/perl/xml.

When I try to upgrade Gnome it complains about problems with XML::Parser. All
searches on google results in suggestions from Joe and others to upgrade
intltool. Intltool was up to date but I decided to do a portupgrade -f on it
anyway. That didn't help. 
I went to p5-XML-Parser and upgraded. I noticed that somehow it believed I
had perl-5.8.2 even though 5.8.4 is installed. I cehcked make.conf and found
perl had added an entry with perl listed as 5.8.2. If I corrected this to 5.8.4
I get the following error:

Dependency error: you don't have the right version of perl in /usr/bin.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/textproc/p5-XML-Parser.

/usr/bin/perl is a symlink to /usr/local/bin/perl created by use.perl.

What do I do now?
