I'm having a bit of trouble with a perl script in a fresh install of 3.5 . The script is /usr/libdata/perl5/ Any time I try to install a port, run any of the package tools, or when it tries to recover vi sessions at boot, I get this error:

Array found where operator expected at /usr/libdata/perl5/ line 13, at
end of line
(Do you need to predeclare CONFmy?)
Bareword found where operator expected at /usr/libdata/perl5/ line 17,
near "}T"
(Missing operator before T?)
syntax error at /usr/libdata/perl5/ line 13, near "CONFmy @wrong"

That fresh install smells rotten to me. Check your /usr/libdata/perl5/ against the official: 3.5 (
