shell.  See the manual page for more hype.  There are also many books

Notes from UPDATING
These upgrade notes are taken from /usr/ports/UPDATING
  • 2013-02-04
    Affects: users of lang/perl5.8 and lang/perl5.10
    Author: az@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      lang/perl5.8 and lang/perl5.10 have been removed since they've
      been EOL by upstream. You will have to recompile all perl dependant
      ports after updating your ports tree. Please see entry 20110517 for help.
    
    
  • 2012-03-11
    Affects: users of lang/perl5.8 and lang/perl5.10
    Author: linimon@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      lang/perl5.8 and lang/perl5.10 have been restored from the Attic
      in order to give a FreeBSD-style deprecation cycle.  However, users
      are advised to upgrade to perl5.12 as soon as feasible.
    
    
  • 2012-03-08
    Affects: users of lang/perl5.8 and lang/perl5.10
    Author: pgollucci@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      lang/perl5.8 and lang/perl5.10 have been removed since they've
      been EOL upstream for 3yrs and 2yrs respectively.  The default
      of lang/perl5.12 has not changed (yet).  Conditional checks for
      perl < 5.12 have been removed.  UNLESS you have PERL_VERSION=5.8.x
      or PERL_VERSION=5.10.x in /etc/make.conf you need take no action.
      If you do, you will have to recompile all perl dependant ports after
      updating your ports tree.  Please see entry 20110517 for help.
    
    
  • 2009-01-13
    Affects: users of lang/perl5.8
    Author: skv@FreeBSD.org
    Reason: 
      lang/perl5.8 has been updated to 5.8.9.  You should update everything
      that depends on perl.  The easiest way to do that is to use
      perl-after-upgrade script supplied with lang/perl5.8.  Please see its
      manual page for details.

Undo ports/165457 to not violate POLA.  As far as I knew, the PR
was to test what happened when we did eventually delete these two

Add support for DESTDIR part I.

This commit should largele be a NOOP as it only adds support
for DESTDIR undefined. This does allow us to start testing
ports with DESTDIR set, but this is as of yet not supported.

Although this has been extensively tested on pointyhat, this
is a very intrusive change and some cases may have been
overlooked. Please contact Gabor and me if you find any.

If one of locale-related variables set to a bad value in the user's
environment (like da_DK.ISO_8859-15 as opposed to da_DK.ISO8859-15 on
-CURRENT), perl ports cannot be built.  While this condition clearly is
an operator error, it is still no excuse for the build failure.

Fix that by cleaning locale-related variables for configure and build
steps.  No plist changes, no portrevision bump.

Update bsd.port.mk's notion of the perl version (to 5.8.6) [1].
Use more correct OSVERSION threshold to distinguish between
base system perl and perl from ports - the right value is 500036 [1].

Also, simplify OSVERSION-related logic in lang/perl5 and lang/perl5.8.
Now it goes as follows:

- for lang/perl5.8, if there is perl in the base system, install
  use.perl script, use a helpful pkg-message, and do not automatically
  update symlinks;
- for lang/perl5.8, if there is no perl in the base system, do not
  install use.perl script, and update symlinks automatically;
- for lang/perl5, always install use.perl;
- for lang/perl5, never update symlinks automatically;
- for lang/perl5, vary produced pkg-message depending on the presence of
  the base system perl.

Bump PORTREVISION for both lang/perl5 and lang/perl5.8.

Update to 5.8.6.  Also:

- redirect output from h2ph to /dev/null [1];
- fix File::Path insecure file/directory permissions [2];
  this resolves CAN-2004-0452
  (http://vuxml.freebsd.org/c418d472-6bd1-11d9-93ca-000a95bc6fae.html);
- for OSVERSION < 500036, create symlinks in /usr/bin not only for
  perl and suidperl, but also for a2p, c2ph, find2perl, h2ph, h2xs,
  perlbug, perlcc, perldoc, pl2pm, pod2html, pod2latex, pod2man,
  pod2text, s2p, and splain;  perl and suidperl are still enough for
  more recent FreeBSD versions [3];
- clean up created symlinks upon deinstallation [4];
- try to cleanup symlinks created by older versions of lang/perl5 and
  lang/perl5.8, during both installation and deinstallation [5];
- added support for DISABLE_BSDPAN environment variable [6];

This fixes a little bug introduced in r1.8.

When installing with pkg_add(1), the ${SITE_PERL} directory was not created
causing system headers not to be perlified and installed by h2ph.  This made
some things break in very mysterious ways.

The pkg-install script used by pkg_add(1) doesn't know about the many special
variables in bsd.port.mk, so it shouldn't try to rely on them.

Merge from lang/perl5:

    Add two knobs:

    WITH_PERL_MALLOC - to compile with perl's own malloc, as opposed to
    the freebsd system malloc. Some might find this useful, since perl's
    malloc is marginally faster in typical cases, and orders of
    magnitude faster in degenerate cases. Use with care.

    WITH_GDBM - to compile with gdbm support.
