Are there any steps required beyond installing the port?
cd /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8 make install use.perl port
I also had to re-install some of my ports after installing the new Perl and switching the system perl to the newer version (4.9-release-p3). Otherwise I saw failures when I restarted Perl applications...
Dunno if a reboot would have fixed it, but I noticed that when I did a make deinstall, make clean, then make install of the ports that acted up, part of the messages mentioned the newer version of PERL :-)
Just a note in case you run into the problems I did...maybe I did something wrong in the process, but this worked amid the rising feeling of panic :-)
