Hello.
my system.
Code:
# uname -rms
FreeBSD 11.2-RELEASE-p4 amd64
I try to change pearl5-24 to pearl5-26
Delete all dependencies.
pkg_deinstall -rR perl5
I put perl5-26
root@FIL_ELI:/usr/ports/lang/perl5.26 # make install clean
error.
How to be in this case.
Code:
freemint           openbsd           utekv  
genix           opus               uwin  
gnu               os2               vos  
gnukfreebsd           os390  
Which of these apply, if any? [freebsd]

Some users have reported that Configure halts when testing for
the O_NONBLOCK symbol with a syntax error.  This is apparently a
sh error.  Rerunning Configure with ksh apparently fixes the
problem.  Try
    ksh Configure [your options]

of the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea to provide
an overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. a
/usr/local/sbin/pkg-static info -g -Ea).

This bug is already extending from 2018-04-06
Couldn't it have been fixed in such a period of time?
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=227312
As I understand it, you need to enable debugging in the kernel, but for what I do not understand.
Code:
#makeoptions    DEBUG=-g                # Build kernel with gdb(1) debug symbols
It is problematic, I have disabled this item on all servers.
I do not want to rebuild the kernel.

If I install Perl from scratch it gives [n] as the default for DTrace:

Code:
Perl can be built to support DTrace on platforms that support it.
DTrace is a diagnosis and performance analysis tool from Sun.

If this doesn't make any sense to you, just accept the default.
Support DTrace if available? [n]
Perhaps you could just type "n" here. Is there a reason you need DTrace?

Incidentally, I never use the "system perl" or even touch it, I install Perl into a user directory. Here are instructions:

This is not an option.

The current workaround is detailed in that bug report in comment 4. To use it, you will have to rebuild the kernel. You do not have to use the new kernel, but you do have to build it.
I have 100 servers, I have to rebuild every kernel because of the bug that exists for more than a year ?!
This is not right!

If you do not need Perl 5.26, then do not upgrade to it on 100 servers.
If you do need Perl 5.26, then use the workaround - you may or may not need to compile kernels on 100 servers if the required modules can be copied between servers.

If you're going to use the default settings any way why don't you simply install the package and be done?

pkg install perl5.26

pkg install perl5.26
Do you recommend installing perl5 from the package?
And in the future does not wake up problems that the perl5 is installed from the package, and everything else from the ports (sources).

I suggest using packages only. Or, if you really need to deviate from the defaults, set up your own repository.
