I gave up on trying to use this in any useful way a while ago - if you've got some way that it works, please share.

(FWIW, things would 'just work' if we'd ship the current version of perl5 and only have p5-foo ports).

For anything outside of MacPorts I recommend using perlbrew and just letting the macports perl install be only for things installed via macports.
