This looks as the same problem we have with MySQL57, where it's using
the system cctools instaead of the more modern cctools from macports.

The fix is described here :

declare usrBin='/usr/bin'
declare devBin="/Developer${usrBin}"

while read -u 9 cctool
    theTool=$( basename ${cctool} )
    echo ${theTool}
    for binDir in "${usrBin}" "${devBin}"
        mv -n "${binDir}/${theTool}" "${binDir}/${theTool}.orig"
        rm "${binDir}/${theTool}"
        ln -s "${cctool}" "${binDir}/${theTool}"
done 9< <( port contents cctools | fgrep /bin/ )

On my 2 x 10.6.8 I've got :
#=> port installed perl*
The following ports are currently installed:
  perl5 @5.28.3_0+perl5_30 (active)
  perl5.30 @5.30.3_3 (active)
