No, you need to install the /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8 to get perl 5.8.x. Then if you keep your ports collection up-to-date the other commands (such as portversion) will tell you when a newer port is available. Don't forget to do # use.perl port if you want the port's perl to be the system default. -- http://freebsdwiki.org/ - Encrypted mail welcome - keyid 0xBF15490B
