bin/perl5 gone?

John Hein-8
It looks like perl5.30 removed the bin/perl5.  The following is in lang/perl5.28/Makefile but not lang/perl5.30/Makefile

       ${LN} -sf perl ${STAGEDIR}${PREFIX}/bin/perl5

Just wondering why.  This breaks scripts (third party if not any in /usr/local) that have perl5 in the shebang.

I removed it last year in the perl5-devel port, I checked all over the
ports tree, it was never used, and looking on the interwebs,
considered non standard, and should not be used.

So, I am not sure if I should put it back.
