Upstream commit 259f22af explicitly sets the make variable PERL_PATH to /usr/local/bin/perl. For some reason this overrides the PERL_PATH we set in the port Makefile. The configure script provides a --with-perl, which works properly.

Patch is attached.

I hit this, too.

Attached is my patch.  I leave it to the maintainer whether to bump PORTREVISION.  If perl was not found, the build fails.  But it's possible that the wrong perl could be found and the build succeeds.  It's probably correct to bump PORTREVISION, but more than likely very few people are affected.
Comment 2 John Hein 2016-11-30 17:30:31 UTC
Just for further clarification... config.make.uname sets PERL_PATH to /usr/local/bin/perl.  Putting PERL_PATH in the environment (MAKE_ENV) is not enough to override that Makefile variable assignment (the make var takes precedence over the env var in this case).  Using --with-perl, however, overrides the default setting in config.mak.uname (in config.mak.autogen).  So that's why using --with-perl is a better substitute for putting PERL_PATH in the environment.
