No. In fact, I very rarely use "make replace". I don't recall using it in
a long, long time.

I am sure I just did a "sudo pkg_delete perl-5.8.5nb6" (after a "make")
and then did "make package".

The p5-XML-Parser has an open-ended dependency allowing to be installed at
same time.

This is becoming confusing to me since I am not sure how I deinstalled it
without forcing we to remove p5-XML-Parser.

And again my installed perl MESSAGE says:

  perl-5.8.6nb3 will use the following directory as the default
  location of the site-specific Perl modules:


But I don't have that directory:

$ ls -l /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl
total 12
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root 4096 Dec 23 09:24 5.8.3
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root 4096 Dec 30 07:25 5.8.5
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root 4096 Dec 30 07:25 man

And on other system also with perl-5.8.6nb3, I have:

$ ls -l /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/
total 4
drwxr-xr-x    3 root     root         4096 May 11  2004 5.8.3
