To whom it may concern,

I am trying to install bioperl locally under my peronal folder. The  core 
modules were successfully installed. I ran through a simple perl script to 
use bio::perl or bio::seq without complain. but I got problem with 
installing bioperl-ext-1.4. 

When I installed core modules I used this 
>perl Makefile.PL LIB=/my_local_directory/

My first question is whether or not I have to use the same way to deal 
with ext modules too and I can use the same directory or a separate one. 

Actually I tried both and both failed with error message as follows:

mendel 207% perl Makefile.PL 
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Writing Makefile for Bio::Ext::Align

/v0/users/deng0007/my_bioperl/bioperl-ext-1.4 .) at ./Makefile.PL line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./Makefile.PL line 1.

could you please let me know what I did wrong or miss in there? thanks a
