perl of late has been non-binary compatible with earlier
versions hence all your XS, etc compiled with say, GCC need
re-compiling to work.
The simple difference between active & inactive is that the
active port is just that & the inactive port is the old port no
longer being used or required. Check the MacPorts user guide at
their site for the full details of how to clean out inactive
ports. It’s really simple.
