Today I had reason to look up all the Perl packages we have.
Fine, just take a look at pkgsrc/README.html for the pseudo category
"perl5", I thought. Too bad, although many packages have this as a
second category it looks like there is no summary using this
Filtering pkgsrc/README-all.html for all packages starting with "p5-" is
certainly possible but I am sure to miss packages like audio/mp3cut or
mail/spamassassin this way.
