Proceeding with configuration, but compilation may fail during Build
Marking serious as it is leading to port build failures with diagnostics which hide a dependency.
ports/devel/p5-ExtUtils-CBuilder/Makefile needs to gain something like:
(warning: untested, I just installed the module manually to get things working)
How-To-Repeat: Attempt to install converters/p5-Encode-Punycode on a clean system.
Fix synopsis and assign.
