Aargh, I had this happen to me on two boxes in the past week so the scars are still fresh enough for me to remember it all.

What worked for me [tm] was to invoke portinstall -r perl58 and let it fix everything. That worked when a simple "make [re]install" wouldn't.

(the r argument is valuable:

-r, --recursive Do with all those depending on the given packages
as well

My advice, worth every penny you pay for it, is to leave the extra directories alone (disk space is cheap). The side-effects are too hard to predict or rectify, in my experience.
