perl5.9 was renamed perl5.9-devel over a year ago [1], then deleted about a
month after that [2] in favor of the release-status perl5.10.  Depending on
what you're doing with it, going with perl5.10 is probably the best choice.

The render port was removed [3] in favor of xorg-renderproto after being a
stub port for a while.  Just force-uninstall render and you should be fine
as it should have been only a build-time dependency and xorg-renderproto
takes care of that now.

Unfortunately MacPorts doesn't have any sort of support for
renaming/deleting ports so this kind of issue occasionally surfaces.
