Perhaps mod_perl was installed as a package, built against the system's
PERL (which is 5.00x in 4.X and 5.6.1 in 5.X).

The best advice, as always with FreeBSD, is to re-install all
perl-related things (that's unfortunately more than p5-*) after one has
upgraded to a new perl - and because this can be tedious, it's best to
install perl5.8 as one of the first things after the initial install.
Learning how to use portupgrade is also recommended.

Perl 5.8 is rapidly becoming a "must-have" for more and more
applications anyway.

For Apache:DBI, there's a port in /usr/ports/www/p5-Apache-DBI
