I found the issue in my comment in the help2man port:

platform darwin 9 {
    # per5.16 fails on Leopard ('perl5.16 -mLocale::gettext -e 1' segfaults)
    depends_lib-delete port:perl5.16 port:p5.16-locale-gettext
    depends_lib-append port:perl5.14 port:p5.14-locale-gettext
    configure.perl  ${prefix}/bin/perl5.14

The issue seems to have been resolved with current sources, so I'm removing that.
