    I purchased a new macbook pro with lion. Trying to install the Perl/Tk package and seems like my lion distribution is missing the x11 include libraries:

    Using -L/usr/X11R6/lib to find /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.dylib
    Cannot find X include files via /usr/X11R6/include
    Cannot find X include files anywhere.

    Can someone let me know where/how I can download the x11 files I need? Looking on Apples site they have Xcode, do I need to download the entire thing?

    probably - this will also get you the compilers

    I would use macports to install perl/tk. It will handle dependencies for you.
