Can anyone confirm or deny?

It looks like portupgrading p5-IO-Socket on FreeBSD 4.x breaks things unless
the user manually replaces perl 5.005 with a more recent version of perl.

I have a client who tripped across this while portupgrading MRTG.

Anyone who can confirm or deny this?  I haven't had time to investigate it
carefully, but if it's a problem, shouldn't the port require perl 5.6 or
