Problem with permissions

Well after you updated the perl port and removed the old perl.
the important thing is to rebuild all packages that rely on perl.
And that are a lot of ports on a mailscanner machine !!!


This command will do so 


portupgrade -fr perl

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

	  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 ;-)
