[Bioperl-l] CPAN install

I forgot to mention that you may still get errors in your "make test",
despite the fact that you installed the Bundle. The question, perhaps, is
whether these failures have anything to do your intended use of Bioperl.
I've never done an install of Bioperl that passed all of the tests myself.
Most of us who like the CPAN approach just do the "force install" at that

I'd already upgraded that. 'install Bundle::BioPerl' works exactly as I
would hope. And before that, upgrading libgd from source worked exactly
as it should too :)
