Makefile problems in /usr/ports

I've been having trouble lately with Makefiles in /usr/ports for ports
of Perl applications.  For example:

grover:/usr/ports/mail/p5-Mail-SpamAssassin> make
"Makefile", line 27: Malformed conditional (${PERL_LEVEL} < 500600)
"Makefile", line 27: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 30: if-less endif
"Makefile", line 30: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 32: Malformed conditional (${PERL_LEVEL} < 500800)
"Makefile", line 32: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 34: if-less endif
"Makefile", line 34: Need an operator
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

I was getting this when running 4.7, but I just upgraded to 4.8-STABLE
today, and it persists.  Have I somehow got /usr/bin/make out of sync?
