     Yesterday, I upgraded from pkgsrc-2005Q2 to -current.  Running a pkg_chk 
now tells me:

    WARNING: No lang/perl58/Makefile - package moved or obsolete?

Looking in pkgsrc/lang/perl58, all I have is a CVS directory.  There is a 
lang/perl5, which seems to be perl-5.8.  lang/perl58 was versioned at perl 5.8.6.

How do I rectify/resolve this situation ?  Would linking lang/perl58/Makefile 
to lang/perl5/Makefile be the preferred solution ?  Or maybe just link 
lang/perl58 to lang/perl5 ?
