Unexpected installation problems with MacPorts

I am only using:

perl5.12 @5.12.3_1+threads

Could it be that when I installed XCODE
(xcode_3.2.6_and_ios_sdk_4.3.dmg) I needed to request it to install
stuff needed for 10.4? Because I remember NOT selecting that option...

I am asking this because I also noticed problems compiling gcc43 and gcc44
and python is giving me a yet-to-be-determined-source-of-trouble...

But as far as I recall it always turned out to be user error, often of the kind where the user did not uninstall and reinstall all ports after upgrading to Snow Leopard, and other times of the kind where the user switched what version of perl they were using. What versions of perl are installed?
