This bug has also been discussed at length w.r.t. Gentoo:


There, one solution suggested is to rebuild perl. In MacPorts, that would be done by running

sudo port -n upgrade --force perl5.8

Does that help?

(I am assuming you are using perl5.8; if you're instead using perl5.10 or perl5.12 that would be good to know.)
