If you're on 2016Q2 as you say then this cannot happen, as:

 - Perl has been at version 5.24.0 since before 2016Q2 was branched,
   so the pkgsrc_2016Q2 tag, the pkgsrc_2016Q2 branch, and pkgsrc
   HEAD all have exactly the same version.

 - The repository clearly shows perl-5.24.0 and no other release
   available, e.g.:

   This is the same for 6.1_2016Q2 and 6.0_2016Q2 too, in case you are
   running either of those releases.

Thus the explanations are that you're either not actually using
2016Q2, you've updated your local lang/perl5 to a newer version and
forgotten about it, or you are perhaps fetching from a rogue binary
package mirror which is shipping you outdated and possibly malicious
packages.  My guess is on #1.

Either way you'll want to figure out which of those it is before
proceeding any further, as you'll only hit more problems by carrying
on regardless.
