ports dependency on perl broken

:bsd.port.mk uses sysctl -n kern.osreldate to set OSVERSION, in our case
:this gets set to 100000 (__DragonFly_version), which then bombs out the
:perl check about line 1612:
:.if exists(/usr/bin/perl5) && ${OSVERSION} >= 300000 && ${OSVERSION} < 500036
:.if !exists(/usr/bin/perl${PERL_VERSION}) && ( defined(USE_PERL5) || \
:    defined(USE_PERL5_BUILD) || defined(USE_PERL5_RUN) )
:    @${ECHO_CMD} "Error: you don't have the right version of perl in /usr/bin."
:    @${FALSE}
:Jeroen Ruigrok van der Werven <asmodai(at)wxs.nl> / asmodai / kita no mono

    I think maybe we should just wipe the check entirely.  It looks like it
    exists to deal with certain FreeBSD 3.x isms.
