Let me guess (and I don't think it's a guess, I'm sure I've seen you on
the FreeBSD lists) -- you're tracking -STABLE in FreeBSD. ;)

Every time you buildworld/installworld, you must reinstall File::Spec --
either FreeBSD has added it, or it's always been part of a standard Perl
5.005_03 install -- been ages since I used that version of Perl in
anything but FreeBSD.

I simply make it a part of my set procedure for buildworld/installworld.
Anytime after the install, but before the reboot, will prevent any
downtime for Apache & RT except for the reboot. I find right after
mergemaster works best, it's user-interactive as well.
