I'm sure this is a silly question, but. I know about use.perl and so forth for the 4.x series.
Yesterday I installed FreeBSD 5.2.1, and the active Perl port is /usr/ports/lang/perl, which is v. 5.6.1. I'd like to upgrade to 5.8.2, which is in /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8 and thus I can't just do "portupgrade perl". Exactly what do I have to do to accomplish this? "portinstall perl5.8" doesn't work ("No such installed package nor such port..."), nor does "portinstall perl-5.8.2_2" (which is said to be the package name in the README file). The PORTNAME given in the 5.8 Makefile is just "perl". I assume I could just do a make install from the perl5.8 directory, but how do I do it with portupgrade? And then how do I get rid of the 5.6 version and rebuild things with 5.8? Thanks.
