perl is a pretty high priority port for fixes, given that something like
half the ports tree has at least a build-time dependency on it.

If what you need is a working perl right now, then try turning off the
DTRACE option for the time being.

That's basically 'cd $PORTSDIR/lang/perl5.24 ; make config' but
different port/pkg building systems may require something different.
