Comment (by nick@…):

 Ok, thanks for your -very- elaborate explanation. Indeed p5.16-template-
 toolkit was installed. I guess I am getting confused by the fact that
 multiple Perl versions can be installed simultaneously.

 I tried to fix all other ports the same way, but ended up uninstalling all
 Perl ports and reinstalling the ones that I could remember (I'll find out
 incrementally what I need eventually, so it's not that big a deal).

 Thanks again! This text should be contributed to a FAQ.
