  I am installing bioperl-1.5.2_102 under cygwin on my Windows XP and having some errors during the process.
  When I was running "perl Build test", one major error is the error about DB_File. I tried to install DB_File from cpan and rpm without any luck.
  CPAN: File::Temp loaded ok (v0.16)
CPAN: YAML loaded ok (v0.62)
    CPAN.pm: Going to build P/PM/PMQS/DB_File-1.817.tar.gz
  Parsing config.in...
Looks Good.
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Note (probably harmless): No library found for -ldb

  Can't test without successful make
Running make install
  Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
Failed during this command:
 PMQS/DB_File-1.817.tar.gz                    : make NO
  I can't remember I had this kind error while installing earlier version.
  Would you please help me on DB_File installation ?
