I don't think (i am actually sure) that you can not install all the p5-* ports. A lot of ports conflict with each other. So it is better to install the p5-* ports you actually need. And the good thing about the ports tree is that they will be when installing software that require those p5-* ports. Regards, Johan Hendriks No virus found in this outgoing message.
