Text::ParseWords is provided by the basic perl port -- see, no installed package: % pkg_info -Ix ParseWords pkg_info: no packages match pattern(s) but the module is still there: % perl -MText::ParseWords -le 'print $Text::ParseWords::VERSION;' 3.24 What you need to do is force delete the package: # pkg_delete -f p5-Text-ParseWords-3.1 and then run # pkgdb -Fu to fix up the broken dependency linkages. Everything that depended on p5-Text-ParseWords would already depend on perl anyhow, so just delete the dependency if pkgdb can't work it out for itself.
