Need sparc64 help with a port build error: unable to extract '/tmp/depends/perl-5.8.7.tbz'!

I have the following unbuildable port error on sparc64 for fpdns:

====================<phase 4: make build>====================
add_pkg perl-5.8.7.tbz
adding dependencies
pkg_add perl-5.8.7.tbz
man/man1/perlvar.1.gz: (Empty error message)
lib/perl5/5.8.7/perl/man/man3/ExtUtils::Embed.3.gz: (Empty error message)
lib/perl5/5.8.7/Filter/ (Empty error message)
pkg_add: tar extract of /tmp/depends/perl-5.8.7.tbz failed!
pkg_add: unable to extract '/tmp/depends/perl-5.8.7.tbz'!
error in dependency perl-5.8.7.tbz, exiting

This looks like an error in the extraction of Perl, as opposed to an actual
error with the port.
