The problem is that all the packages are recursively marked as
broken when devel/p5-Test-Harness fails to build (even tough they
don't need it), so fixing the build of devel/p5-Test-Harness
will make the problem go away...
One other work-around is to prevent the bulk build from adding the
spurious dependency. This should be possible by hiding the
DEPENDS line (in p5-Test-Harness/depends.mk) by something like
.if perl-version < 5.8.3
but I don't know enough of the infrastructure to know if this is
easy to do...
