Correct. All the p5-* packages (i.e., the ones managed by pkgsrc) have
gone without a hitch. It's the ones outside the control of pkgsrc that
are giving me a problem.

Before this update to perl, both pkgsrc-managed and not-pkgsrc-managed
modules were installed to site_perl. As I understand it, one of the main
accomplishments/advantages of this update was to be able to segregate
the two. And I guess they are *literally* segregated, but I was
expecting something a little different than what I'm getting... ;)
