I get similar problems for other perl programs installed via
freebsd ports, when I try to remove them with:

#pkg_delete package_name
#cd /usr/ports/package-category/package-name; make deinstall.

The problem is, that ports db assumes the the modules are
located in
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-freebsd, where
in fact they were installed in

As rmkml said, a possible solution is just to symbolic link
i386-freebsd to i386-dragonfly. 

Is there a need for a shell script in a base system, which
automatically symbolic links freebsd dir to dragonfly with
every installworld? Or is there a better solution?
