It could be that you are using perl v4 (try perl -v), /usr/bin/perl is
perl 4 normally, and you will have to install perl5 to be able to use
um... 'use'. 

The perl5 port/package in lang/perl5 I think would solve your problem.

If you have already installed perl 5, it is by default installed as
/usr/local/bin/perl, but /usr/bin/perl is (normally for me) in the
path before it, so perl 4 gets called.
