|There is one group that doesn't appear. All of the versions of automake
|use perl and have the version to use as the 1st line. You need to
|portupgrade -f automake
|to get things ready for your new version of perl. FWIW, I am using
|perl-5.8.2_5
|
|There should be some sort of USE_PERL in their makefiles but isn't
|there.
