    # use.perl port

You need to re-run that every time there is a version number increase
for perl.  Look at the lines added to /etc/make.conf to understand how
this works.

You will also need to re-install any perl ports that install modules
or other files under /usr/local/lib/perl5{/site-perl,}/${PERL_VER}
