I keep getting this particular error when attempting to building
Here is the log file

Operating system name? [freebsd]
Operating system version? [5.4-release-p8]
Build Perl for SOCKS? [n]
Use the PerlIO abstraction layer? [y]
Build a threading Perl? [n]
Build Perl for multiplicity? [n]
Use which C compiler? [cc]
Checking for GNU cc in disguise and/or its version number...
Now, how can we feed standard input to your C preprocessor...
Directories to use for library searches? [/usr/lib]
What is the file extension used for shared libraries? [so]
Try to use long doubles if available? [n]
Checking for optional libraries...
What libraries to use? [-lm -lcrypt -lutil]
What optimizer/debugger flag should be used?
[-O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe ]
Any additional cc flags?
[-DAPPLLIB_EXP="/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7/BSDPAN" -DHAS_FPSETMASK
Let me guess what the preprocessor flags are...
Any additional ld flags (NOT including libraries)? [-pthread -Wl,-E]
Checking your choice of C compiler and flags for coherency...
I've tried to compile and run the following simple program:

#include <stdio.h>
int main() { printf("Ok\n"); return(0); }

I used the command:

cc -o try -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe
-DAPPLLIB_EXP="/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7/BSDPAN" -DHAS_FPSETMASK
-DHAS_FLOATINGPOINT_H -pthread -Wl,-E try.c -lm -lcrypt -lutil

and I got the following output:

Segmentation fault (core dumped)
The program compiled OK, but exited with status 139.
You have a problem. Shall I abort Configure [y]
Ok. Stopping Configure.
===> Script "Configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to tobez at FreeBSD.org [maintainer] and attach the
"/usr/ports/lang/perl5.8/work/perl-5.8.7/config.log" including the output of
the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea to provide
an overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. an `ls
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8.
+ umount /dev

*** Error code 1
