Thanks Mike, but I want to know if there is a way to make portmanager
recognize the port as current. perl-threaded-5.8.7 is the same port as
perl-5.8.7 built with option "WITH_THREADS=yes".

It's just seems strange why portupgrade considers the port current
while portmanager refers to it as old. As I sait it is the same port
but with a suffix and a build option.

Kind regards
