I've never used MacPorts before, but this thread on PerlMonks might be
helpful on the subject of moving modules about:
Since it's on the same machine and - I think? - the same version of
Perl, you might be able to copy your Perl libraries from your old Perl
to your new Perl - but this might not work for all modules, such as
those which have been compiled for a specific version of Perl. If you
want to try that, you can find out where each Perl is keeping its
libraries by running 'perl -V', and looking at the folders under
'@INC'. If you don't want to risk it, CPAN autobundling will take
longer (as each module will have to be downloaded and installed) but
is much likelier not to break anything, and would still be reasonably
fast unless you've got a lot of modules to move.
Hope that helps!
