Hmm, no I don’t have /usr/lib/libgcc_s.10.5.dylib either. I realised I had 
screwed up the order of the ln command in my previous post, but the refusal by 
MacOS X for me to create the symlink manually remained when the source and 
destination file references were reversed. I was however able to manually 
create the symlink in /usr/local/lib:

cd /usr/local/lib; sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libSystem.dylib libgcc_s.10.4.dylib

and this allowed perl5162-core to build, however at the last step I encountered 
an error installing the deb file:

This was installing with fink set to use sudo.

This is very strange, as other fink packages (gcc7 & gcc8 for example) built
