port install doesn't create symlink

I installed perl5.14 and expected that when I ran "perl -v" I'd see something like

	This is perl 5, version 14, subversion 1 (v5.14.1) built for darwin-multi-2level

But instead I see

	-bash: /opt/local/bin/perl: No such file or directory

Looking at /opt/local/bin I see 

	perl5.14.1 -> perl5.14


	perl5.14.1 -> perl

which is what I want.

Ditto for the other binaries produced by the install. What am I missing?
