So with an installed system, you need to choose that tree. The sane choices are pkgsrc HEAD from CVS, and the latest branch. Once chosen, then pkg_rolling-replace should be run with -u, to start bringing the installed set in line with the tree. Without -u, you don't have that consistency. That might be ok, but you're basically on your own then. Also note that pkg_rolling-replace just does make replace, so you could go to lang/perl5 and do make replace. It didn't leave a package because you passed -r which says not to. You can run 'make show-downlevel' and pkg_info to see what's installed. perl has had issues where things that are part of perl move to/from separate packages. Usually you have to just pkg_delete -f those other packages. Really you need to run pkg_admin check to see what's going on, unless you give up on this tree. I don't mean to discourage you from starting fresh; it seems likely less pain from you.
