I believe pkgsrc will notice the built in, but the perl shipped by Apple
is not as new as the perl pkgsrc wants.
I figured it is best to let pkgsrc put the version it want under
/usr/pkg and not corrupt the Apple provided perl with pkgsrc additions.
I've got a small patch to apply to /usr/pkgsrc/perl5 that makes this
work if you like.
