You mainly need a proper perl installation (I use the macports installation) and then you need to install a bunch of perl modules via cpan. Depending on how much you're used to working with the terminal and with perl, this is certainly doable.

This can be fixed with 'sudo cpan Log::Log4perl'. In general: Cpan has a search engine (http://search.cpan.org/ ), and if an error like the above pops up just search for what perl can't locate. It normally takes very little time to find out what module is actually missing.
