perl-5.12.5 This port is marked DEPRECATED

Per olof Ljungmark
OK, fine.

And what should we replace it with on a production 9.2-PRERELEASE? 5.14?
5.16? 5.,18?

Which would be least painful?

Thanks for any input.

5.16 (which is slated to become the default if I recall correctly).

5.18 has some interesting backwards incompatibilities.

Unless you have some specific reason for doing otherwise, I would
always take the newest version.

Unless I am mistaken, perl-5.18 is not even in the ports system.
Keeping it out simply because some applications may not be 100%
compatible is going to cause more problems than it corrects.

You're mistaken.

Perl modules p5-Mail-SpamAssassin and security/amavisd-new
with their plethora of dependency modules both run fine
under perl 5.18.1 from ports (as well as with 5.18.0 and 5.17.9).

I should add: except for a warning in SpamAssassin 3.3.2,
addressed by:
  https://issues.apache.org/SpamAssassin/show_bug.cgi?id=6937
The SpamAssassin 3.4.0 from its SVN trunk is fine.

mail/postgrey does not work with 5.18. Daemon process does not start
up after rc.d script is executed.

I found and tried following patch but problem did not fixed.

https://github.com/schweikert/postgrey/issues/3

So I switched back to 5.16.
