Okay, revise that.  I get the message you mentioned, but installation only
fails after tests are run.  The single failed test (rnamotif.t) is due to
DB_File not being installed, which Sendu has corrected in CVS and (I think)
the 1.5.2 branch.  However, I can't get DB_File to install via CPAN (I have
VC++ Express Edition installed).  I think XML::SAX and a few others fail as
well.
