Had a failure during upgrade outdated on port xchat-gnome. Removed that port and allowed the upgrade to continue and then went back to try and install it cleanly. Got the following from the failure log file:

:info:configure checking for perl... /opt/local/bin/perl
:info:configure checking for XML::Parser... configure: error: XML::Parser perl module is required for intltool

Looks to me like I need a PERL module installed, but it's been a whils cince I did any Perl work and I've forgotten how to get that installed, and am unsure how to do it under Macports anyway...

Can someone please point me at how to get past this?

Regards, Andy
