Sure:

Auto-guessed '5.32.0' Nothing to do '5.32.0' is fine Beginning of configuration questions for perl5. Checking echo to see how to suppress newlines... ...using \c The star should be here-->* First let's make sure your kit is complete. Checking... Looks good... This installation shell script will examine your system and ask you qu +estions to determine how the perl5 package should be installed. If you get stuck on a question, you may use a ! shell escape to start a subshell +or execute a command. Many of the questions will have default answers in + square brackets; typing carriage return will give you the default. On some of the questions which ask for file or directory names you are + allowed to use the ~name construct to specify the login directory belonging to + "name", even if you don't have a shell which knows about that. Questions wher +e this is allowed will be marked "(~name ok)". [Type carriage return to continue] The prompter used in this script allows you to use shell variables and backticks in your answers. You may use $1, $2, etc... to refer to th +e words in the default answer, as if the default line was a set of arguments g +iven to a script shell. This means you may also use $* to repeat the whole defa +ult line, so you do not have to re-type everything to add something to the defau +lt. Every time there is a substitution, you will have to confirm. If ther +e is an error (e.g. an unmatched backtick), the default answer will remain unc +hanged and you will be prompted again. If you are in a hurry, you may run 'Configure -d'. This will bypass n +early all the questions and use the computed defaults (or the previous answers i +f there was already a config.sh file). Type 'Configure -h' for a list of optio +ns. You may also start interactively and then answer '& -d' at any prompt +to turn on the non-interactive behaviour for the remainder of the execution. [Type carriage return to continue] Much effort has been expended to ensure that this shell script will ru +n on any Unix system. If despite that it blows up on yours, your best bet is t +o edit Configure and run it again. If you can't run Configure for some reaso +n, you'll have to generate a config.sh file by hand. Whatever problems y +ou have, let me (https://github.com/Perl/perl5/issues) know how I blew it +. This installation script affects things in two ways: 1) it may do direct variable substitutions on some of the files includ +ed in this kit. 2) it builds a config.h file for inclusion in C programs. You may edi +t any of these files as the need arises after running this script. If you make a mistake on a question, there is no easy way to back up t +o it currently. The easiest thing to do is to edit config.sh and rerun all + the SH files. Configure will offer to let you do this before it runs the SH +files.

    *** Unexpected product version 11.0.

    The error message comes from hints/Darwin.sh, which apparently hasn't considered the coming of version 11.0.
    Presumably something needs to be done to that file and/or Configure itself to overcome the problem.

    Maybe ask about that on p5p if you don't receive better follow-up advice here.
    (I'm assuming that the additional advice to "*** Try running sw_vers and see what its ProductVersion says" didn't help much.)

    Cheers,
    Rob

      Yep. It didn’t help much. Thanks and best regards, Karl

        Respond to the bit that's in brackets and ignore the rest.

        It's little wonder that you're an Apple devotee.

    Try using the perlbrew install-patchperl command. It will install Devel::PatchPerl, which is a tool to patch the source of older perl releases to allow them to compile on newer systems. The latest release of Devel::PatchPerl (2.04) should be able to fix this issue.

      I was aware of this. And BTW:
