After updated the FreeBSD 5.3 ports with Cvsup command installing the Perl port results in an strange error;

Error message: On FreeBSD before 6.2 ports system unfortunately can not set default X11BASE by itself so please help it a bit by setting X11BASE=${LOCALBASE} in make.conf. On the other hand, if you do wish to use non-default X11BASE, please set variable USE_NONDEFAULT_X11BASE. *** Error code 1

  1. Open make.conf:
  2. # vi /etc/make.conf
  3. Add the following: X11BASE=${LOCALBASE}
