${prefix}/bin/perl missing with perl5.x +mangle_names

Reported by: manphiz@… Owned by: ghosthound
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.9.1
Keywords: Cc: MarcusCalhoun-Lopez (Marcus Calhoun-Lopez)
Port: perl5


When using mangle_names variant in perl5.x ports, ${prefix}/bin/perl gets deleted, so that if all perl5.x is installed using +mangle_names there will be no ${prefix}/bin/perl, and everything depends on it breaks. So it might be beneficial to let perl5 port provide the executable to prevent it from missing.

On the other hand, there might be some value to let ${prefix}/bin/perl missing so that /usr/bin/env perl uses the system perl. In this case all ports should use ${prefix}/bin/perl5 provided by perl5 port so everything still works. Just my 2 cents :)
