[OS X TeX] Problem with lualatexmk script in TeXShop v. 3.92

Here is what appears to have happened, caused by a change in the new 
version (4.54) of latexmk, which is used in the new version of TeXShop.

1. To achieve certain occasionally-needed effects using wild cards in 
specifications of files to be cleaned up, previous versions of latexmk 
used a function glob out of Perl module File::Glob.

2. That function is deprecated in Perl 5.26, and will disappear in Perl 
5.30. The function bsd_glob is supposed to be used instead.

3. So I made a change in latexmk v. 4.54 for it to use bsd_glob instead 
of glob.

4. The OP has a very old Perl 5.12, whose File::Glob fails to provide 
bsd_glob (or at least, not to allow it to be imported in the normal 
way).  This results in the error message reported.

I have made a fix that **should** solve the problem. Unfortunately, I 
cannot test it because I don't have an old enough version of Perl to 
reproduce the OP's problem and to test my fix.  This new version 4.54a 
of latexmk in the attached zip file.  (Unzip it, and rename/move the 
resulting file appropriately to replace the latexmk used in TeXShop 
3.92.  (Herb: Where should it go?))

Let me know what happens.
