Question about installations of Perl

I explicitly requested MacPorts to install
port install perl5.12 +threads
However, I noticed that when I ask:
68# port installed perl5*
The following ports are currently installed:
perl5 @5.12.3_1+perl5_12 (active)
perl5.12 @5.12.3_2+threads (active)
Why do I get two ACTIVE installations?? If one was installed by
another port why is it active?
Also how would this affect installation of other ports?? If I request
another port should I request as:
port install p5-* or p5.12-*??
