Hi John, 

Thanks for the prompt reply. 

My perl is 5.8.8. version.pm is 0.59.

I just reinstalled version.pm from the freebsd ports and now the
makefile built OK (perl Makefile.PL).

Of what package are you asking about please ?

I mainly installed jifty's dependencies from CPAN and just let it
DWIM.  In some cases if I could not install dependencies from CPAN,
I used the ports.

I then changed to svn so that I could keep it up to date easily.

I will install it from ports.

This appears to solve it, it is building now.
