Using Perlbrew macOS impossible to install distributionsby Anonymous Monk

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've been programming with Perl for years on Windows (ActiveState and Strawberry). Now I need to move to macOS (High Sierra, Xcode installed for what that it can matter) and having big, big problems even to get started! As I didn't want to mess up the already installed version of Perl, I installed Perlbrew. The Perlbrew installation seems to be fine. To start using Perlbrew, I open the Terminal and write source ~/perl5/perlbrew/etc/bashrc At this point I can use the command Perlbrew. If I try to install Perl I use:ADs-MacBook-Air:~ ad$ perlbrew install 5.22.0
The installation begins and after a quite long time I get the following error message
I tried to install a few of Perl version and I get always the same error. I haven't forced installation yet, because I thing I should be able to install it without forcing it. Upgrading patchperl has been already performed. The log file is so long I do not see anything it helps me. However this are the last lines, maybe they say something to you:
Why I am having so many problems starting to use Perl on a Mac while on a Windows I never experienced anything like this (i.e. everything works for me out-of-the-box)?
