Thank you so much :) Unfortunatly, I have seen notice about
/usr/ports/UPDATING tutorial too late and have upgrade it manually. I hope,
all will work good :)

5.10. :) 

If you follow the directions in /usr/ports/UPDATING all goes
 I have doen a couple of mailscannner machines and perl 5.10 works

 To make things simpel 

 AFFECTS: users of lang/perl*

AUTHOR: skv at [1]
 lang/perl5.10 is out. If you want to switch to
it from, for example
 lang/perl5.8, that is:

 Portupgrade users:
 0) Fix
pkgdb.db (for safety):
 pkgdb -Ff

 1) Reinstall perl with new 5.10:

portupgrade -o lang/perl5.10 -f perl-5.8.*

 2) Reinstall everything that
depends on Perl:
 portupgrade -fr perl

 Portmaster users:
 portmaster -o
lang/perl5.10 lang/perl5.8
 portmaster -r perl-

 Note: If the "perl-" glob
matches more than one port you will need to
 specify the name of the perl
directory in /var/db/pkg explicitly. 

The process will consume some time,
so make some really nice coffee and relax when the system rebuilds all the
perl ports ;-)
