Hell, I’d be in support of just saying that you can’t switch +perl variants like we say you can’t toggle +universal.  Then we could just remove all the fuss in the other Portfiles.

Well, intltool didn't have perl variants before, and doesn't really need
them any more than any other port that uses perl modules. Last time the
topic was discussed we decided to just use the current default perl
version in such cases.

Or if the relevant maintainers want to remove the old perl versions or
just have one version, that's fine with me. I don't even use perl
directly most of the time.
