I'm guessing that may have something to do with one of the perl mime
modules but I've no idea which one (helpful aren't I? ;-)

Apologies for asking this but have you read /usr/ports/UPDATING
specifically wrt the recent perl upgrade? Could be worth running the
perl upgrade script mentioned there.

I know that portmanager should handle the upgrade without any issues
but I've not managed to have enough time to let my system work through
all the perl-dependent ports yet.

You could use 'portupgrade -fR amavis' to rebuild all the ports that
amavis depends upon as well as amavis itself. That should work things
out in the right order and rebuild everything so that all dependecies
are sorted.
