It's not really a bug. Those ports just depend on the Perl 5.12 subport and not the Perl 5.14 subport; in fact, I think most ports that require Perl modules currently depend on the 5.12 versions. Ports are not designed to accept arbitrary subports for dependencies; nor should they, since that behavior would result in unrepeatable builds.

You can keep perl5.12 around independently of perl5.14, as well as the 5.12 versions of required dependencies.
