Log Message:
Update lang/perl5 to 5.8.7.  Changes from version 5.8.6 include updates
for many "core" modules, UTF-8 and Unicode bugfixes, and ithreads

The major changes are in the pkgsrc infrastructure to handle Perl and
Perl modules.  All pkgsrc-installed Perl modules are now installed in
"vendor" directories, and the perl interpreter has been modifed to
search for libraries in the following order: site, vendor, perl.  The
Perl library is stored in a directory that is named for the Perl ABI
version associated with the Perl release, so any updates of Perl to
newer versions can be done "in-place" as long as Perl ABI version
remains the same.  All Perl scripts and man pages are stored in
locations that won't conflict between site, vendor, and perl modules,
and a new utility perllink(1) now manages symlinks to those scripts
and man pages under the usual ${LOCALBASE}/bin and ${LOCALBASE}/man/man1.

PERL5_SITEPREFIX may be set to the prefix where local, site-specific
modules will be installed, e.g. PERL5_SITEPREFIX=/usr/local.  Note
that modules installed here are completely unmanaged by pkgsrc.

Update the buildlink and tool dependencies on perl to require perl>=5.8.7
to reflect the new locations for Perl modules and the Perl shared
