Upgrading from FreeBSD 5.4 to 5.5 STABLE

I've checked /etc/make.conf and there are no CFLAGs in it.  I've never 
changed it since I started using the computer, but here is what I did find:

# added by use.perl 2005-09-05 11:07:59

The error message I'm recieving makes reference to Perl, is it possible that 
the syntax of Perl changed and I need to update it and this make.conf file?
