Portname for perl ports is generally upper/lower case mix as the name  
of the perl module itself. I don't think it needs to be smashed to  
lower case.  Just do a pkg_info and see all the p5-* ports...

I like to name them to match what DISTNAME needs to fetch the file, so  
I don't have to explicitly set DISTNAME.
