Have a look at lang/ghc/patches/patch-at, it already fixes up the configure 
script for use with perl 5.10 and 5.12 – you *should* be able to just turn [02] 
into [024], regenerate the checksums ("make mps" from lang/ghc) and be done. 
Sorry I can't test this because ghc doesn't work on DragonFly.

In the medium term, wouldn't it make sense to just throw out this whole perl 
version check, as we can enforce a recent enough perl version through pkgsrc 

In the long term, lang/ghc is in desparate need of a version upgrade and 
DESTDIR support.
