PAR with wxPerl on MacOS X

friedo has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


The binary distribution of wxPerl for MacOS X 10.4 comes with its own perl binary (called wxPerl) which must be used to run GUI programs written with wX, the native MacOS perl being apparently incapable of doing so.

Now I want to use PAR to bundle up my wxPerl app, but PAR wants to use the native perl installation on my machine, not the wxPerl binary. Is there a way to specify which perl PAR uses? (I didn't see it among the pp commandline options.) Do I have to build my own perl instead of using Apple's? (I hear this can be a pain on OSX.)

Much thanks as always.

      Taking a quick peek at the source, it appears that Wx::Perl::Packager is only useful for Win32, but perhaps I'm missing something.

      Perhaps I can do something by tweaking PAR::Packer -- I'll need to take a closer look when I get home tonight.
