Building from source (or building XS modules) requires you to have also installed the "Mac OS X Developer tools" available on recent OSX install DVDs, alternatively they can be downloaded from Apple Developer (free registration). (Note: in 10.3 you should also install the optional BSD SDK, otherwise installing new Perl modules won't work.)
