Many FreeBSD used to depend on ports/lang/perl5 for quite some time as we
only had perl4 in the base tree.  So you just add a dependancy on perl,
and things Just Work.  In reality in FreeBSD, we added "USE_PERL=yes" and
"USE_PERL5=yes" to those ports and bsd.port.mk knew if the needed
version of perl was in the base system or not.  If not, then dependancies
were added.
