It will work, but is hardly good enough from our point of view (you 
shouldn't have to do that).

Can you tell me exactly what you mean by 'were not installed'? What did 
you do to try and install? How did you determine that installation had 

With CPAN, if you were still getting errors during testing, what were 
those remaining errors, and did you do a forced install to ignore the 
errors? If a forced install didn't actually install anything, what 
message did CPAN give you about that, if any?

With the manual download, after doing "perl Makefile.PL", what is your 
output of "make install"?

Thank you,
