Which is a remarkably complicated equivalent to:

   pkg set -o perl5.12:perl5.16
   pkg install -fR perl5.16

I'm sure though if you really must have fun with pipelines that you
could start with:

   pkg query %ro perl5

but working out how to divide that into chunks and feed into portmaster
is up to you.
