Did you remember to update the ports that have Perl as a dependency with
the perl-after-upgrade script?  You can find it in lang/perl5.8/work/
after the build (it is kept in lang/perl/files/).  Make sure you read
the script documentation (embedded) and double check for anything that
might have been forgotten.

Good luck.
