Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2013-11-20
    Affects: users of lang/perl5.12 lang/perl5.14 lang/perl5.16 and lang/perl5.18
    Author: mat@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      The THREADS option has been enabled by default in all Perl. If you're using
      binary packages you need to do :
    
        # pkg install -Rf perl5
    
      If you're not using binary packages, and want to switch from non threaded
      Perl to threaded Perl, you need to recompile and reinstall most ports
      depending on Perl. Supposing you have Perl 5.16, you would do:
    
      Portupgrade users:
        0) Fix pkgdb.db (for safety):
    	pkgdb -Ff
    
        1) Change the option in lang/perl5.16:
            make -C /usr/ports/lang/perl5.16 config
    
        2) Reinstall everything that depends on Perl:
    	portupgrade -fr lang/perl5.16
    
      Portmaster users:
        1) Change the option in lang/perl5.16:
            make -C /usr/ports/lang/perl5.16 config
    
        2) Reinstall everything that depends on Perl:
    	portmaster -r perl5-
    
      Note: The installed Perl package was named perl and is now named perl5, if
    	you have not updated your installation in a long time, you may need to
    	use "perl-" here.

    Affects: users of lang/perl* and any port that depends on it
    Author: az@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      lang/perl5.12 has been upgraded from version 5.12.4 to 5.12.5
      lang/perl5.14 has been upgraded from version 5.14.2 to 5.14.4
      lang/perl5.16 has been upgraded from version 5.16.2 to 5.16.3
    
      The directory structure where Perl is installed has also been modified:
      "major.minor" is now used instead of "major.minor.patchlevel".
    
      The "perl-after-upgrade" script has been removed.
    
      Please rebuild all Perl ports and all ports that depend on it:
    
      # portmaster -r perl
        or
      # portupgrade -rf perl
        or
      # pkg install -fR perl

      The default version for Perl has also been changed from 5.12 to 5.14.

lang/perl5*: Remove absolute path to makewhatis in pkg-plist

Generally absolutely paths are not used with @exec in pkg-plist.
In this case, the path /usr/bin/makewhatis doesn't work on DragonFly
where the binary is located at /usr/sbin/makewhatis.  Removing the
full path is a no-op on FreeBSD and fixes perl man page installation
on DragonFly.  No revbump required.
