perl5: man pages installed in the wrong directory

Reported by: mohd-akram (Mohamed Akram) Owned by: mojca (Mojca Miklavec)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.7.2
Keywords: Cc:
Port: perl5


The Perl man pages are put in the man1p and man3p directories. Those directories are typically used for POSIX man pages. To match what macOS does in /usr/share/man, they should be put in man1 and man3.

FYI, this originated in r48955 as a way to avoid conflicts between perl* ports and p5-* ports that install some of the same man pages.
