You'll have to download src.tar.gz and sys.tar.gz from /pub/OpenBSD/3.4
on your favourite OpenBSD mirror. Follow the faq for patching the

patches shouldn't really matter.

Perl is in the base distribution. Those ports you look at are indeed
perl-modules, to be installed through ports/packages. To install the
ports collection, just grab ports.tar.gz from sthe same place as the OS
