You need to install Xcode, which provides a working compiler. EXTERN.h should be available in the $(PERL_INCDEP) directory, whose value can be found in 'Makefile'. I'm inclined to reject this ticket as it doesn't appear that you have all the necessary tools installed on your system, but I'll leave it open for now in case there is something strange going on. Please also include the output of 'perl -V'.

I would recommend rejecting this. It appears to be related to mojave breaking xcode. I found this link helpful. https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/254380/macos-mojave-invalid-active-developer-path I had to download and install command line tools from https://developer.apple.com/download/more/ then run these commands. xcode-select --switch /Applications/Xcode.app xcode-select --switch /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools

So I had done all that already, but the problem (or maybe just the symptom?) seems to be that /System/Library/Perl/5.18/darwin-thread-multi-2level/Config.pm still doesn't end up knowing about the "/Library/Developer/CommandLineTools" path: bash-3.2# xcode-select -p /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools bash-3.2# grep '/Library/' /System/Library/Perl/5.18/darwin-thread-multi-2level/Config.pm archlibexp => '/System/Library/Perl/5.18/darwin-thread-multi-2level', privlibexp => '/System/Library/Perl/5.18', sitearchexp => '/Library/Perl/5.18/darwin-thread-multi-2level', sitelibexp => '/Library/Perl/5.18', PS: Just 'cuz Apple broke--- er, I mean "changed" something doesn't mean *WE* can't fix it... -- :- Dabe

Please don't reject this bug. I have tried all of the following: 1. xcode-select --install 2. xcode-select --switch "directories listed above" 2. Completely deleting Xcode and uninstalling everything and re-installing everything from scratch. 4. I also found from another website that the problem seems to be that Xcode in Mojave removed libgcc, and so I tried installing that. 5. Installed patchperl from perlbrew 6. Installed a new version of perl from perlbrew No matter what I do, XS modules simply fail to compile. This is a real bug. This cannot be brushed aside as someone else's problem. It is actually preventing people from doing real work. Thanks, Balaji

Rejecting this bug would imply that somehow magically all Perl users should know how to configure Perl build systems on their Operating Systems, and know all the ins-and-outs of what changed in their Operating System when they upgrade to a new version. Most of us don't. Rejecting this bug also means an insult and is too harsh on new programmers. This is precisely the sort of tendency that would prevent interested developers from working on this. Configuring the CPAN module installation for XS modules to work out of the box shouldn't be so hard that people have to spend more than 72 hours on a problem like this and still have ZERO results. I'm sorry, but this thread needs more attention than it is getting. -Balaji
I'm moving this ticket to ExtUtils-MakeMaker as if there's anything we can do, it's in that code.

After a lot of debug, I found a website, where one of the participants found out that actually, Mojave's system perl 5.18.1 is not a good version to be used. So instead he installed perl 5.28.1 from Homebrew. This is exactly what I also did and this solution actually worked. I am now in the process of uninstalling all the components of 5.18.1 and installing 5.28.1 instead. This was required because Mojave has actually restructured where they would place perl XS libraries and where they would place EXTERN.h. It seems like they have organized it better now. This would not have been a problem if you got a brand new system with Mojave installed on it, because then they would structure the directory structure for Perl 5.18.1 itself. But if you upgrade from Mac OSX 10.13 then your old directory structure is retained and you must install a totally new version of Perl. I now wonder why this could not have been solved by re-installing older 5.18.1 after removing it. But that actually did not work for me - I don't know why. But anyway, I have fixed this after dedicating almost 80 hours to it. Thanks for not being of much help and for instead threatening to reject this bug report, leaving the rest of us in the lurch here! This is all I had to do: Show quoted text
> brew install perl
This installs Perl 5.28.1 After this, when I did: Show quoted text
> sudo cpanm -i Template Devel::Cover
Now things work like a charm. -Balaji

It seems that the system perl of macOS Mojave comes with locally patches, which append "-iwithsysroot" to ExtUtils-MakeMaker, ExtUtils-CBuilder and ExtUtils-Depends so that c compilers can find perl headers in /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.14.sdk/System/Library/Perl/5.18/darwin-thread-multi-2level/CORE.

It is not a problem only for perl ? https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50780183/cannot-install-brew-on-mojave-with-xcode-10/51202481#51202481 https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv/wiki/Common-build-problems says "When running Mojave or higher (10.14+) you will also need to install the additional SDK headers( https://developer.apple.com/documentation/xcode_release_notes/xcode_10_release_notes#3035624 ) by downloading them from Apple Developers( https://developer.apple.com/download/more/?q=Command%20Line%20Tools ). You can also check under /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/Packages/ as some versions of Mac OS will have the pkg locally. $ sudo installer -pkg /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/Packages/macOS_SDK_headers_for_macOS_10.14.pkg -target / "
