I just upgraded from MacOSX 10.6 to 10.8. Many of my projects depend on Mac::Glue, Mac::Carbon and their ilk. Even though Mac::Glue comes bundled with MacOSX 10.8 perl, it doesn't seem to work:
[kw|~] perl -ce 'use Mac::Glue' Can't load '/System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level/auto/MacPerl/MacPerl.bundle' for module MacPerl: dlopen(/System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level/auto/MacPerl/MacPerl.bundle, 1): no suitable image found. Did find: /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level/auto/MacPerl/MacPerl.bundle: mach-o, but wrong architecture at /System/Library/Perl/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level/DynaLoader.pm line 204. at /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.12/Mac/Glue/Common.pm line 21 Compilation failed in require at /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.12/Mac/Glue/Common.pm line 21.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.12/Mac/Glue.pm line 7. Compilation failed in require at -e line 1. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at -e line 1.
Mac::Glue is 32-bit:
[kw|~] lipo -info /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level/auto/MacPerl/MacPerl.bundle Non-fat file: /System/Library/Perl/Extras/5.12/darwin-thread-multi-2level/auto/MacPerl/MacPerl.bundle is architecture: i386
/usr/bin/perl claims to be compatible with that architecture:
[kw|~] file /usr/bin/perl /usr/bin/perl: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures /usr/bin/perl (for architecture i386): Mach-O executable i386 /usr/bin/perl (for architecture x86_64): Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
I'm running MacOSX 10.8.2, perl 5.12.4.
Does anyone have any idea how to fix this problem? If MacOSX is 64-bit, does that prevent perl from being compatible with 32-bit modules, despite its claim to be compatible with two architectures?
