Perl versions 5.8 and 5.10 are considered EOS[1][2].  We are considering
perl5.8 and perl5.10 deprecated.  They are scheduled for removal from the
tree in four months (January 31, 2013).

You must upgrade your perl installation to newer versions (5.14 - default /
5.16) which are currently available in ports tree.  All support for older
versions will also be removed from the p5-* ports.

[2] - yes, I know about about 5.12, but it is not as old
