lang/perl5 doesn't compile anymore, at least on NetBSD/i386 3.0,
NetBSD/macppc 3.0 and SunOS 5.9:

===> Configuring for perl-5.8.7nb6
hintdir="/usr/pkgsrc/lang/perl5/work/perl-5.8.7/hints";                         for hints in ${hintdir}/*.sh; do                                 { echo "";     echo "cat > UU/pkgsrc.cbu <<'EOCBU'";            echo "# This script UU/pkgsrc.cbu will get 'called-back' by Configure to set";  echo '# linker options after all other call-back scripts have been invoked.';  echo 'ldflags="'-Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib' $ldflags"';  echo 'lddlflags="'-Wl,-R/usr/pkg/lib' $lddlflags"';  echo "EOCBU";                                      } >> ${hints};                         done
cannot create /usr/pkgsrc/lang/perl5/work/perl-5.8.7/hints/ permission denied
*** Error code 2

make: stopped in /usr/pkgsrc/lang/perl5

(same error on all platforms)
