Could you please run 'perl -v' for me on your Mac and let me know exactly what version is installed? Early versions of 5.8 had some really ugly bugs that I'd rather not have to think about, IIRC, so I'm tempted to force at least 5.8.8, but I need to know if the MacOSX Perl can be counted on to be at least that high.
OS X Tiger has perl 5.8.6. OSX's support for open source libraries is in general very poor, they tend to be outdated and buggy, which is why I decided to bundle custom compiled versions with calibre.
