I see that /opt/local/bin/perl is symlinked to perl5.12. Instead of manually changing that, what is the macports-recommended way for changing the default perl to a specific version?

sudo port install perl5 +perl5_14

Individual ports that use perl modules might still use perl 5.12 versions, and there is usually no way to change that.
