so in order to get portmanager to stop updating perl do I add the
following to /usr/local/etc/portmanager/pm-020.conf

will that work?
It should work. I have it configured to ignore JAVA and OpenOfice. It
just issues a message in the log that the port is being ignored.
Out of curiosity, why can you not run a newer version of Perl on that OS?
I am running the newest version of PERL. I am running perl 5.8.8 which
is the latets port. for some reason when I am running portmanager and
update dependencies it wants to reverts perl back to the system perl.
any clues how to keep perl updated but not set to the system port?
