This sounds to me as if lang/perl is hit by some issue similar to what
happened for the lang/python ports, when compiled with PTH enabled.

A quick and dirty fix for a user might be to add
${LOCALBASE}/include/pth as permanent include directory to the
environment's CFLAGS/CPPFLAGS (at least for building ports), though I
would not recommend it.
