indeed. I don't think a good solution here is to have a 'port select' for each and every perl module that might want to install something into $prefix/bin, though

(My preferred solution to this, and most of the other perl mess, would be to just have one perl version as 'the perl we provide' - but it appears that most other people don't agree).
