Nothing went wrong with the Bioperl installation (well, expect there 
shouldn't have been any test failures - can you post those please?). 
gbrowse simply defined its Bioperl requirement incorrectly. If you tell 
me exactly where you downloaded gbrowse from and how you went about 
installing it, and provide the exact, complete error message you got 
from it, I might be able help the authors fix the problem.

Or I'm pretty sure they can figure it our for themselves :)
