There are many tips to fix your database of instaled ports/packages, lets rock.
(that message i think he is saying you dont have Perl installed via ports)
a very nice app to help you maintainning the installed ports is sysutils/portupgrade. just:
#cd /usr/ports/sysutils/portupgrade ; make install clean ; rehash ; portversion | grep '<'
(read UPDATING) and then
finaly fix the database
#pkg_info perl-5\* | more
(#ls -l /var/db/pkg/perl*)
and you can see if you have Perl installed by ports/packages.
if you have Perl installed but want to force a reinstall, do:
#cd /usr/ports/lang/perl5.8 ; make FORCE_PKG_REGISTER=yes install
read the last output normaly the file pkg_desc or message is outputed in he end of the instalation of any port. i recomend you take a look at http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/ports.html
if you get loss just come to #FreeBSD @freenode.
god PIP :) (port install party)
