It's broken.  Don't use 2.24.  The last working version is 2.23.

But your real problem is that XML::Parser requires a C compiler and
the knowledge of how to build "XS" modules for MacPerl.  If you don't
one or the other of these, you shouldn't install XML::Parser direct
from CPAN, at least not from the author's directory.  That's why
you're having the problems you describe below.

But you're in luck, since Arved Sandstrom has built 2.23 for MacPerl
and made it available in a format where you can install it and it will
work.  You can find it in his CPAN directory,
