I would guess you should [re]cvsup your ports (did you do that after the
install?) and remove/rebuild.  That is a guess.  Just to check, I just
installed perl58 from the ports, issued the command 'use.perl port',
installed phoenix (had never looked at it before) and it works well on
4.8-stable.  I think I'll try it for awhile!
