perl.h #includes stdio.h, so this sounds strange.  I don't see how Perl
would compile at all, so it wouldn't be installed.  Are you sure magic.h
is included from stdio.h?  Does this 3-line program fail to compile?
   #include <EXTERN.h>
   #include <perl.h>
   #include <stdio.h>
If not, please look again at the errors to find out how magic.h gets

Maybe you can fix it by putting
    #define magic Perl_magic
before the Perl files are #included and
    #undef  magic
afterwards.  Or to keep the changes in one place, put this in
    #define magic Perl_magic
    #include </path/to/your/real/perl.h>
    #undef  magic
Does that work?
