Try these methods of 'minimising' FreeBSD

FWIW - I run 4.11 in 20M of a 32M Compact Flash card
with the build described here

https://neon1.net/misc/minibsd.html

The box acts as a network health monitor with SNMP and fping
utilities running, has a DHCP server running, a GSM modem daemon
and has about 100+ of the 'common' base install utilities an board.
Like tcpdump, vi, grep, comm, awk, the shells csh and sh ....
I have partitioned the CF card to have a 2M configuration partition
that is made writeable by rc.shutdown to save a list of my
.conf files and .sh files.

And I believe that you can run PERL in the 32M space if you want to 
add it to the build list...


If you need 5.x or 6.x try these

http://www.ultradesic.com/index.php?section=86   for 5.x
http://www.ultradesic.com/index.php?section=125  for 6.x
