Description Robert Archer 2005-12-28 17:10:03 UTC
	In the port's Makefile, a check is made for Perl 5.6 or greater. Due to
	incorrect handling of PERL_LEVEL, this check will always succeed.

	As a result, users of 4.x will be able to install the port using the
	version of Perl in the base system, but will not be able to run it.

	Thanks to Jarrod Sayers <jarrod@netleader.com.au> for spotting this.
