I've had zero problems with upgrades to Perl, etc after I stopped  
compiling my packages in the host OS and started building the packages via  
poudriere and using pkgng (sysutils/pkg). pkg can detect when a perl  
upgrade is happening and is intelligent enough to reinstall all programs  
that require perl; poudriere is smart enough to rebuild and repackage them  
all. It's a match made in heaven and dead simple to use.
