Hrmm... Sorry about that, I'd assumed that you'd installed from ports,
not packages. On my box, in the /usr/bin directory:
$ls -alT perl*
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 19 Mar 20 15:25:53 2004 perl@ -> /usr/local/bin/perl
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 19 Mar 20 15:25:53 2004 perl5.8.2@ -> /usr/local/bin/perl
So, you should be able to check your /usr/bin directory for the perl and
perl5.8.0 files. If they are links to the system's perl, then simply
link them to the new location (which should be /usr/local/bin/perl).
That should allow the newer perl to be used by default.
