I was looking after xerces-p-1.3.4 support for NetBSD, and I just
realized I forgot the PLIST for xerces-p-1.3.3. That's bad! :o/

And the fix is not really easy. There are three standard location
handled by the package system for perl modules:

PERL5_SITEARCH -> /usr/pkg/lib/perl5/site_perl/powerpc-netbsd
PERL5_ARCHLIB  -> /usr/pkg/lib/perl5/powerpc-netbsd/5.00404
PERL5_SITELIB  -> /usr/pkg/lib/perl5/site_perl

the packlist for Xerces-P goes into 

Hence two questions: 
1) I currently have Perl-5.6.0. I didn' expect PERL5_ARCHLIB to point to
the 5.00404 directory. Is it the normal behavior?
2) How do I tell the package system to go in
site_perl/5.6.0/powerpc-netbsd ?
