Well, there is a textproc/p5-XML-Parser port.  It should be a dependency of
the relevant port required by X11/kde3 (it is not entirely clear from your
mail which particular port has failed its configuration change, the "...."
above might have contained some useful information).  At any rate, this must
be fixed unless it was fixed already.  I would not know without knowing what
port has failed.

As for the immediate problem at hand, could you send me (privately, there is
no reason to involve that many lists) the output of

   ls -l /var/db/pkg

As well as

   cat /var/db/pkg/bsdpan-URI*/+CONTENTS

As well as

   ls -l /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.9/man/man3/

As well as

   cat /etc/make.conf

As well as

   cat /etc/manpath.config

That should get us started.  In theory modules installed directly from CPAN
should have their files registered correctly with the package system.  It
would be very interesting to find out what went wrong.

If you don't care about finding out what went wrong and why, and you are
sure that the only thing you installed directly from CPAN is XML-Parser
(with its dependencies), then an easy way out is to rm -rf
/var/db/pkg/bsdpan* and to go to /usr/ports/textproc/p5-XML-Parser and make
install clean that.

In this case you would not care about creating packages from bsdpan-*
things, and you should be in the clear when you create packages from p5-*
things.  :-)
