Freebsd 4.8

1. installed a perl mod that decided it needed Perl 5.8.  that went ok, but 
now I've got

/usr/bin/perl          5.0
/usr/local/bin/perl   5.8

What is the command to get the sytstem to switch to defaulting to 5.8?

2. "pkg_add -r db3"  also went ok, but

perl -MCPAN -e 'install BerkeleyDB'

bombs out with:

/usr/bin/perl -I/usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/mach -I/usr/libdata/perl/5.00503 
/usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/ExtUtils/xsubpp -noprototypes -typemap 
/usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/ExtUtils/typemap -typemap typemap 
BerkeleyDB.xs >xstmp.c && mv xstmp.c BerkeleyDB.c
cc -c 
-I./libraries/4.2.41/include       -DVERSION=\"0.25\" 
-DXS_VERSION=\"0.25\" -DPIC -fpic 
-I/usr/libdata/perl/5.00503/mach/CORE  BerkeleyDB.c
BerkeleyDB.xs:74: #error db.h is from Berkeley DB 1.x - need at least 
Berkeley DB 2.6.4
