Since you're running perl-5.8.9 you need to have p5-IO-Compress
installed as a separate port.

Try this:

# portupgrade -o archivers/p5-IO-Compress -f p5-Compress-Zlib-2.015
# portupgrade -o archivers/p5-IO-Compress -f p5-IO-Compress-Base-2.015
# portupgrade -o archivers/p5-IO-Compress -f p5-IO-Compress-Bzip2-2.015
# portupgrade -o archivers/p5-IO-Compress -f p5-IO-Compress-Zlib-2.015_1

That should transfer all dependencies on p5-(IO-)?Compress-* onto
p5-IO-Compress, which is the desired result.
