I’m thinking about upgrading Perl on the web server. It’s currently the base FreeBSD install of 5.005_3 and I want to move to 5.6.1. Part of me says if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. However, two important modules [to me] now require Perl 5.6.0 or above: Class::DBI 0.95+ and DBI 1.38+.

I think the crappy part is going to be reinstalling all the Perl modules from ports into the new Perl distrib. What fun.
