It's simply untested with the perl update, and there were significant
pkgsrc changes to the perl package which made it necessary to "re-port"
the package to use the existing pkgviews implementation. If you can
figure out how to integrate it into the new perl package, I encourage
you to submit patches for it. I don't have the resources to undertake it.
