I ran into the same miniperl core dumps a few days ago
while trying to switch back to non-threaded Perl (shortly
after updating the system to a recent RELENG_6).

The only way I found to "fix" it was to:

- deinstall all Perl ports,
- rebuild Perl
- reinstall all Perl ports

I assume miniperl somehow included incompatible local
Perl libraries, but I didn't really look into it.
