perl variant to postgresql82 not working?

Hi. I'm trying to install plperl along with postgres 8.2 on a MacBook
running Leopard by issuing the following command:

port install postgresql82 +perl

Everything seems to go smoothly (see the output below my signature).
However, after I create a database, attempts to CREATE LANGUAGE 'plperl'
(and 'plperlu') fail in psql with the message:

ERROR:  could not access file "$libdir/plperl": No such file or directory

The and files are nowhere to be found. The perl5.8 port
is installed.

I'd be grateful for any help with this.
