 Replying to [comment:4 Schamschula]:
 > I just ran into the same issue on another machine. Careful rereading of
 the error:
 > {{{error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool}}}
 > {{{port info libtool}}} shows that it now is built against Perl 5.28.
 > Your only option is to upgrade {{{perl5}}}:
 > {{{sudo port install perl5 +perl5_28}}}

 No, this is a bug in the configure script. It doesn't need to care which
 version of perl intltool is using internally. We submitted a patch to
 intltool upstream years ago, but nobody has ever reacted to the report, so
 configure scripts generated by upstream projects remain affected.

 If you regenerate the configure script with the intltool port installed,
 it will use the patched intltool.m4 and the problem will go away. (It
 looks like gpredict may not need the perl5 portgroup or any perl
 dependencies at all?)
