Really? Port conflicting with itself?

| OK.  I've now updated /etc/make.conf:
| g1-252(10.2-S)[3] tail -2 /etc/make.conf
| DEFAULT_VERSIONS+=      perl5=5.22
| g1-252(10.2-S)[4] 
| and retried "portmaster -ad" (to builld/install the previously-failed
| misc/gimp-help-en); I still see a very similar-looking failure:

I amended the UPDATING entry earlier today, adding:

  If your Perl package name is not called perl5-5.xx.y but perl5.xx-5.xx.y,
  will need to rename it so that portupgrade doesn't get confused:

    pkg set -n perl5.xx:perl5

Note that it's not a replacement for setting the DEFAULT_VERSION in

I'll add portmaster to the list, as it seems it's getting confused too. (It
did not in my testing.)
