Here are the relevant lines in bioperl-db's Build.PL that seem to be  
causing the problem.

     $config{port} = $build->prompt("Port the server is running on  
(optional, '' for none)?", $config{port});
     $config{port} = '' if $config{port} eq "''";

I have changed that to set the conf file port to undef instead  
(unquoted).  It will be in the next RC (next few days).
