That script predates the removal of perl from the base system, and was
supposed to facilitate the switching between various perl versions. It
still has its justification of existence on -STABLE, but on -CURRENT, it
does not work well any more. What you got is likely links to nowhere,
your perl wrapper binary was clobbered.

Bottom line: if at all, it should only be used for "use.perl port", for
the cases where the wrapper does not work as desired.
