Are you sure those ports aren't dependencies of something your intended
ports depend on? It's easy enough to check; just look for perl as a
"deps" entry in the rest of your packages (or if you already have them
installed after a "pkg upgrade", just ask pkg by trying to delete perl).

Sorry if I'm stating what was already obvious to you, but I don't have
an easy way of trying to reproduce the problem. It must be a pretty
barebones machine to not need perl; even my headless machines need it
for *something*.
