Well, I made one test with a perl5.18 in that poudriere jail, but I was
not aware that all the depends were rebuild during that test. It takes
approx. 8 hours, I think I would have noticed that.


  pkg rquery '%n-%v %rn-%rv' | grep perl5-5.18

shows me the ports that depend on perl5-5.18.

Fix: Delete those from the repo and rebuild those ports
(only approx. 1200...), @work.
