Patch for irssi

Perl support is optional so the pkg-message should reflect on that fact and while at it switch to UCL format.

Perl seems to be needed for building since the change to build with mesos.
Comment 2 David O'Rourke 2020-11-25 22:38:25 UTC
This pkg-message looks good to me.

Perl being required for build is being handled over in https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=251371

  In r556069 the port changed to build with meson. This requires perl to build
  regardles of the option PERL that allows perl scripts to be run in irssi.
