I tried to upgrade gnome-doc-utils today but it failed. Looking in the log I found:

================================== :info:configure checking for intltool >= 0.35.0... ./configure: /opt/local/bin/intltool-update: /opt/local/bin/perl: bad interpreter: No such file or directory :info:configure found :info:configure configure: error: Your intltool is too old.

"$procedure $targetname" :info:configure Warning: the following items did not execute (for gnome-doc-utils): org.macports.destroot org.macports.configure :notice:configure Log for gnome-doc-utils is at: /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_gnome_gnome-doc-utils/main.log ==================================

So the problem is that there is nothing at "/opt/local/bin/perl". I've only ever done normal installs and upgrades of perl via macports as a dependency for other things. Never messed with my perl intstall manually. "gnome-doc-utils" shouldn't be trying to configure itself with a perl path that doesn't exist in a normal macports install.

I created a symlink from "/opt/local/bin/perl" to "/opt/local/bin/perl5.12" and that failed because "perl5.12" didn't have the proper perl module dependencies installed. Switching the symlink to "perl5.8" worked because that is what had the proper dep modules installed.
