The things you've tried don't make any sense to me; where did you get
such weird advice?

I'd say to get rid of the things you added, then 
 # cd /usr/ports/lang/perl5.12
(or the directory for which ever other perl you want), then
 # make config
(so you can select the SUIDPERL option), then
 # make clean install clean

I would also suggest that you take a look at the ports section in the
FreeBSD Handbook, and then the manual page.

Good luck!
