What is up with perl5.26 on Snow Leo?

A number of ports apparently want to install perl5.26. In this specific
case it is fricas. For reasons I cannot fathom prl5.26 fails during the
destroot phase on my system (SL, 10.6.8).
So I try installing perl5.26 by itself; it fails with a message that
"clang-3.7" cannot be updated.
I try updating clang-3.7; it fails with (you guessed it) a dependency on
perl5.26 not updating.
I upgrade clang-3.7 with the -n option, and that seems to work. But
perl5.26 still refuses to update.
Trying to update perl5.26 with the -n option: no luck either. It always
fails in the destroot phase. Trying an extra cleean beforehand also does
Attached is the main log for the attempt to install perl5.26 with the -n
The fricas port incidentally installed with the -n option just fine
using whichever version of Perl I have, which actually seems to be perl
5, version 26, subversion 3.
So, can someone shed light on this?
