Before going any further I would suggest that Da Rock  be advised to update 
his ports tree followed by

# pkgdb -F
Fix any problems then. If there are any problems he cannot fix at this stage 
then report those. Then:

# portmaster -a or portupgrade -a

If he gets any failure which may possibly be linked to a Perl problem he 
should rebuild perl with upward and downward recursion. e.g
#portupgrade -rR lang/perl5.8

Until that is completed any other report could send us off on a wild goose
