Thanks Walt, this is it.

I just put /usr/local/bin in front of my path and it works, but I suppose its not the way to do it ;)

I was vaguely remembering this use.perl port, but it doesn't come up when you do a 'apropos perl'. There should be a manpage for it, which I'm ready to write if if its not too time consuming.

I can notice it is looking in the wrong site-perl. How do we fix that, if
possible permanently?

This is just a guess: try running "use.perl port" from a shell command line.

There are lots of confusing symbolic links installed by perl, and maybe some
of those symlinks are out of date on your machine.

BTW, any time you do a 'make upgrade' in /usr/src you will need to repeat
the 'use.perl port' command to re-create the symlinks.
