This needed to be done, but it included a change to the perl5 portgroup that is incompatible with how that portgroup was used before: the perl5.branches option was removed; previous p5 ports relied on that option existing. So as with the previous time that we did a massive overhaul of perl in MacPorts two years ago, the existing perl5 1.0 portgroup should have been kept intact and a new perl5 1.1 portgroup created with these changes, to avoid these warning messages.

I guess we could put the default back for a while if the warning is
confusing people.
