Upgrading Perl bsdpan / cpan-ports to freebsd-ports

I'm trying to upgrade all of my Perl modules installed through CPAN to
FreeBSD-port one's, but I'm running into a few difficulties with the
following ports:
    bsdpan-DB_File-1.810 DB_File - Perl5 access to Berkeley DB version 1.x
    bsdpan-PerlIO-via-QuotedPrint-0.06 PerlIO::via::QuotedPrint - PerlIO
layer for quoted-printabl
    bsdpan-Pod-LaTeX-0.57 Pod::LaTeX - Convert Pod data to formatted Latex
    bsdpan-Pod-Perldoc-3.13 Unknown perl module
    bsdpan-Term-Cap-1.09 Term::Cap - Perl termcap interface
    bsdpan-Test-1.25    Test - provides a simple framework for writing test
    bsdpan-Text-Soundex-3.02 Text::Soundex - Implementation of the Soundex
    bsdpan-Unicode-Collate-0.40 Unicode::Collate - Unicode Collation
    bsdpan-Unicode-Normalize-0.30 Unicode::Normalize - Unicode Normalization
    bsdpan-bignum-0.15  bignum - Transparent BigNumber support for Perl
    bsdpan-if-0.0401    if - C<use> a Perl module if a condition holds

All but bsdpan-DB_File-1.810, bsdpan-PerlIO-via-QuotedPrint-0.06 and
bsdpan-Text-Soundex-3.02 where installed for 5.8.2. The
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.2/-directory doesn't exist anymore, meaning they
are broken (pkg_info -g bsdpan confirms this). Doing a pkg_info -R bsdpan*
returns no results, nor does pkg_info -r p5* | grep bsdpan. 
Can I conclude that I can safely delete all those packages? Any reason I
cannot find an appropriate FreeBSD-port for them?
Kind Regards,
Sander Holthaus
