Yeah, well ... about that :-(

I understand the reasoning behind it.  At one time FreeBSD had perl in
the base.  The problem was the support cycle.  At some point you had a
supported release that you had to keep going with an unsupported perl --
the perl development moves that much faster.

The argument over "what is in the default install" continues within
FreeBSD to this day, as I'm sure it does in every software project.
There's no perfect solution.
