You could only ever install one of them, but it's installable for each Perl
version. I believe there is a perl-version-speciifc bin directory you can
add to $PATH with unversioned names, or you can create a symlink to the
specific version you want to run. Otherwise, what should MacPorts do if
someone installs (say) both p5.12-pmtools and p5.16-pmtools?
