I got a little further. It is necessary to type:

  install B/BI/BIRNEY/bioperl-1.4.tar.gz

It might be worth documenting this in the install instructions or fixing 
the distribution so it's not necessary.

But now I get test failures:

make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 11
   /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
Running make install
   make test had returned bad status, won't install without force

My system is Debian Woody with a bunch of backports. Perl 5.6.1.

Any thoughts on why these tests are failing?
