I too am sitting on nearly 200 ports with Perl 5.34 added.

My non-authoritative response: You will probably be told to wait for to be merged. I had similarly proposed updating a batch for 5.32, which ended up being superseded by doing a mass update (which took several weeks to merge). Although I would think committing smaller self-contained batches is presumably better in terms of managing buildbot resources.

SORBS is once again listing GMX, so I cannot reply to MacPorts lists at the moment. Could you please forward this to macports-dev for me?
