Hi all

The perl5.8 ports after update to 

	# $FreeBSD: ports/lang/perl5.8/Makefile,v 1.102 2009/03/03 16:21:02 # skv Exp $

work fine on my latptop and all my old server. 

But on a fresh install FreeBSD I got this message : 

[root /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8]# make
===>  Vulnerability check disabled, database not found
===>  Found saved configuration for perl-5.8.9_2
=> perl-.tar.bz2 is not in /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8/distinfo.
=> Either /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8/distinfo is out of date, or
=> perl-.tar.bz2 is spelled incorrectly.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8.
[root /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8]# 

If I put 




it's working.

The reason is on old install freebsd they are "PERL_VER=5.8.9" in make.conf
