glob failed (%s)

(W glob) Something went wrong with the external program(s) used for glob and <*.c>. Usually, this means that you supplied a glob pattern that caused the external program to fail and exit with a nonzero status. If the message indicates that the abnormal exit resulted in a coredump, this may also mean that your csh (C shell) is broken. If so, you should change all of the csh-related variables in config.sh: If you have tcsh, make the variables refer to it as if it were csh (e.g. full_csh='/usr/bin/tcsh'); otherwise, make them all empty (except that d_csh should be 'undef') so that Perl will think csh is missing. In either case, after editing config.sh, run ./Configure -S and rebuild Perl.
