lang/perl5.8 has been EOL since ~12/16/2008
lang/perl5.10 has been EOL since ~08/23/2009

lang/perl5.12 is currently in Maint mode (our current default)

lang/perl5.14(.2) is currently GA

lang/perl5.15 is currently Devel and in the works with a -exp run

lang/perl5.8 and lang/perl5.10 will have DEPRECATED and EXPIRATION_DATE
set after the freeze+slush are lifted for the 8.3-RELEASE cycle.
http://www.freebsd.org/releases/8.3R/schedule.html (seems like June 1).
We will set the date to be 3 months from that.  You should plan to
migrate then to perl 5.14 BEFORE then
