Undo ports/165457 to not violate POLA.  As far as I knew, the PR

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.

steps.  No plist changes, no portrevision bump.

[ 09:34 tobez ] Original commit 
Update'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.

[ 09:40 philip ] Original commit 
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, so it shouldn't try to rely on them.
