Perhaps this has more to do with my lack of understanding of how
overlays work more than anything else. Based on what you've said I
should just be able to unmask perl 5.10, and emerge perl and that should
work just install base perl, and perhaps all the modules i had installed
for 5.8.8 (that exist in portage anyway)?
I was looking at instructions in a wiki somewhere, which i of course
can't find now. (not the one linked from the thread about catalyst in
the forums). For some reason that article made me think using the
overlay was an all or nothing deal.
