The prototype for Diff::SetInput is:
void SetInput( FileSys *fx, FileSys *fy, const DiffFlags &flags, Error *e );
so the call in ClientUserperl::Diff() is correct. What's surprising is the
prototype that your compiler thinks is correct. It seems to have converted
all the 'FileSys *' arguments into 'const char *', and that's not going to
work. Looks like something has #define'd FileSys to 'const char'.
You could try putting a line like this at the top of all the .cc files in
and see if that helps.

I have ported P4Ruby (though not P4Perl) to Mac OS X, but there's a really
nasty gotcha which means it will remain unsupported for the forseeable
future. You'll have the same problem with P4Perl once you get over your
current hurdle. The same workaround should work:
(note that the current Darwin API build is now built with gcc 3.1 so you
shouldn't need to build Perl).
Note also that P4Perl on Mac OS X will also be unsupported until the problem
with the dynamic loader is resolved.

That should be -Dconst_char='const char'
