Problems with installing tor

Hello everyone, I'm a noobie to BSD systems and got some problems with installing tor and virtualbox-ose from ports. My system is 11.1-RELEASE.

Code:
cd /usr/ports/security/tor (or simular with virtualbox)
make install clean
...
configure: error: perl 5.8 required
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to sunpoet@FreeBSD.org [maintainer] and attach the
"/usr/ports/misc/help2man/work/help2man-1.47.5/config.log" including the
output 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).

System says that perl is up-to-date...
Code:
...
pkg version -v | grep perl
perl5-5.24.3                       =   up-to-date with index

What should I do to install this software? How to install perl 5.8?

I see the error is in misc/help2man.
Do you have installed perl5 with CPAN?. If deinstall it and install it with the port.
Which output has make -V DEFAULT_VERSIONS (run it in the port).
If not run in the misc/help2man port make configure and attach the /usr/ports/misc/help2man/work/help2man-1.47.5/config.log

If you're going to be using the default options I suggest you use the packages instead. That will save you a lot of time and effort. There's nothing to gain by building from ports if you're using the defaults.
