Problem solved.  I had two options; patch the script or install the one 
module in SITE_PERL/mach.  I chose the latter.  The rest of the modules and 
scripts work fine because they call the modules correctly - use; (for example.)  The one script simply called 
without any directory (use;)  I was hoping to keep all the modules 
in one location, unique to the port, but it made more sense to me not to 
edit the script.

BTW, maybe you know the answer to this.  I can't remove the perl modules in 
pkg-plist because it prepends PREFIX to SITE_PERL, making the location 
/usr/local/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8.  This seems to me to be a 
bug.  Shouldn't pkg-plist honor SITE_PERL and not prepend PREFIX?

I solved the problem by writing a pkg-deinstall script that removes the 
modules and directories, but seems like a kludgy solution to me.
