Lucky. :)

    red.stonehenge.com:~ +# pkg_info | grep -c 'p5-'
    red.stonehenge.com:~ +# cat MAKE_ALL_PERL_PORTS

    cd /usr/ports || exit 1

    pkg_info -q -o -a >/tmp/$$

    for i in `ls -d */p5* | fgrep -vxf /tmp/$$`
        if pkg_info -q -O $i | grep -q .
        then echo "SKIPPING $i - INSTALLED";
                cd $i &&
                echo "<== $i ==>" &&
                if make missing | grep -v '/p5-'
                then echo "SKIPPING $i - DEPENDENCIES"
                        trap ':' 2
                        make BATCH=yes install clean </dev/null

Yes, I have actually installed all Perl ports that depend only on
other CPAN modules, and not anything else that I didn't already
have installed.

I wish I could remember.  Just that something comes up every once in a while
and I curse that the upgrade has stopped. :)
