Perl versions 5.8 and 5.10 are considered EOS. 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.

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