Hello Greg,

You are 100% correct in your observations. I'd also thought that it's
something to do with FreeBSD updates but wanted to be sure about it.
As a matter of fact I've always had to do this whenever I do buildworld.

OT: Do you know why the perl in FreeBSD is not being properly updated -
the decision behind staying put at ver 5.0.x???

Thanks to all who responded to give me the solution.
