I am a newbie and while installing bioperl and other related softwres
i had installation problems
but fortunately succeeded in debugging few .I had no idea where to
share those experiences
but now being  a member of this forum might help. Though i dont have
the installation outputs
i would like to share the last such experience  while installind
Berkeley DB .It was not able to include a file Extern.h and i found
that the concerned file in
/usr/lib/perl5/..../Core/Extern had a wrong extension . After setting
it to Extern.h installation was
possible.I could not install few other related softwares .

At present i am facing this problem.The second code for blast in
bptutorial(html format on bioperl site ) when run does not yield the
desired result .
#! /usr/bin/perl
 use Bio::Perl;
 $seq_object = get_sequence('swiss',"ROA1_HUMAN");
    # uses  the default database - nr in this case
       $blast_result = blast_sequence($seq_object);

The output after running the code is 
------------------- WARNING ---------------------
