  Priority:  Normal           |  Milestone:
 Component:  ports            |    Version:  2.3.3
Resolution:  invalid          |   Keywords:
      Port:  perl5            |
Changes (by devans@…):

 * status:  new => closed
 * resolution:   => invalid


 This generally occurs when a port has been interrupted during a previous
 activation.  Just do as suggested by the error message and force the
 activation.  The conflicting files will be moved aside with a *.mp* sort
 of suffix and can be manually removed after the successful activation
 without causing any problems.

 sudo port -f activate perl5 @5.16.3_0+perl5_16
