How to handle dependency about perl module which is already included in
perl base package?

For example, Test::Simple module, Perl 5.8.8 includes v0.62, 5.8.7 includes v0.54.
Now, PERL5_REQD+=5.8.7 in lang/perl5/, so if require 
version is below 0.54, no need to depend on devel/p5-Test-Simple.

Put this specification on each packages?
This makes hard to maintain each package, maintainer must aware of 
version each perl base package including. 
Or should write something like and
"Of course I love NetBSD":-)
