Hmm. I agree on your comment about the CPAN installs, but maybe you
overlooked the fact that these errors are appearing with the MacPorts
port command only. Apparently there are some binaries installed by
MacPorts. Right after I do anything like installing or upgrading
something I get this:

Scanning binaries for linking errors: 7.9%
Warning: Error parsing file xxxxxxxx

The xxxx point to dylibs that are created via CPAN modules that use
XS. I have tried installing the specific modules via ports and
nothing. I always get the annoying warnings.
