I have a problem with p5.12-xml-parser. It is the dreaded configure
"Couldn't find your C compiler" error. I am on Mac OS 10.6.8, and have
XCode 4.2. It lives in /Developer as it should be. And 
'xcode-select -print-path' give correctly the answer /Developer. In the
log file I see that it wants to use clang ( CC='/usr/bin/clang' ), and
/usr/bin/clang exists and runs.

I have seen that there are a bunch of bug reports about this but none of
the solutions that I found work for me. I have reinstalled XCode,
reinstalled perl5.12, both with 'sudo port -n upgrade --force perl5.12'
and by uninstalling, cleaning and installing it. Uninstalling
p5.12-xml-parser and then installing it, even with -s doesn't help. I
have tried various configure.compiler options without success. So I am
at my wits' end.

Because there are already so many bug reports I didn't find it useful to
add something there.
