Description

I am running on macOS Mojave 10.14.3. I tried to install perl 5.28.1 but the installation failed. I followed through the log file and executed the command which the log says failed. The second file is the output I got from executing the make instruction. The perl installed on my system by default is version 5.18.2 in /usr/bin/perl.

The log says:

:info:destroot install_name_tool: object: /opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_lang_perl5/perl5.28/work/destroot/opt/local/bin/perl5.28.1 malformed object (unknown load command 9)

This suggests your install_name_tool command is too old. Please reinstall the correct version. It's part of Xcode and/or the command line tools.

To update install_name_tool, should I just delete it and expect Xcode to download a new one? I reinstalled Xcode and have xcode-select now pointing to the correct place. But install_name_tool is still kept intact.

Also software update says that "No new software available" with softwareupdate --list.

The current version of install_name_tool on my mac is

/usr/bin/install_name_tool:

/usr/lib/libxcselect.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 1.0.0)

/usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version 1252.200.5)

That doesn't actually tell us anything because (a) /usr/bin/install_name_tool is just a shim that runs the actual program inside Xcode, and (b) otool -L only shows the versions of the libraries an executable is linked with, not the version of the executable itself.

More helpful might be xcodebuild -version and xcrun --find install_name_tool.

xcodebuild -version gives

Xcode 10.1

Build version 10B61

and xcrun -find install_name_tool prints

/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/install_name_tool
