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/ by something like

   .if perl-version < 5.8.3
   DEPENDS+=       ....

but I don't know enough of the infrastructure to know if this is
easy to do...
