This will give you a list of all the p5 (perl modules) in macports.
Picking one of them lets see what category macports keeps p5's in.
port dir p5-algorithm-annotate
Now cd to your local repo and create your category and port dir.
mkdir -p perl/p5-mac-growl
Now cd to your port dir and grab the file. I'm choosing to use curl
but how ever you want to get it there is fine.
curl http://trac.macports.org/raw-attachment/ticket/24748/Portfile -O
Now you could just build the port while in the port dir but for the
sake of learning lets let port know about our new port.
port dir p5-mac-grow
Now that port is aware of your new port you can install it as any
port install p5-mac-grow
