Currently the ports tree is under a 'slush' state. For this case I
think the most likely case is that we will not ship Perl 5.8.10 with
FreeBSD 7.1, but if someone would get a patch by that moment and gets
tested against the current ports collection, it would have its way into
The most important thing is that "someone" :) do the porting work and
submit it to portmgr@ for a pointyhat twist.
