If you mean perl-5.8.0_4, I don't have this problem on my machine:

[stijn@pcwin002] <~> ls -ld /usr/local/scripts
ls: /usr/local/scripts: No such file or directory
[stijn@pcwin002] <~> ls -l /usr/local/bin/h2ph
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  23071 Jan  6 10:41 /usr/local/bin/h2ph
[stijn@pcwin002] <~> ls -l /var/db/pkg | grep perl
drwxr-xr-x  2 root  wheel      512 Jan  6 10:42 perl-5.8.0_4

Something must be wrong with your setup. I recommend cleaning the whole
/usr/local/scripts mess out, pkg_delete perl-5.8.0_4, doing a 'make clean'
inside lang/perl5.8 and then reinstalling it.
