Recently while building updates it comes to a point where it fails finding some perl libraries. So I thought I should re-install perl. When I type # pkg_delete 'perl*' though, it states that there are ports depending on perl (which is quite natural btw) and doesn't remove the port. I am new to FreeBSD and don't know what can be done at this point. Please help! EDIT: Just ran # portmaster -f lang/perl5.16 It seems to be compiling right now. Will let you guys how it goes.
