Do you have an old 'bioperl' PPM installed (1.4, 1.5.2)? We are
calling the package BioPerl now (note capitalization), which is a
giveaway (the above message has both 'bioperl' and 'BioPerl'). Try
uninstalling the older bioperl PPM first, then installing BioPerl.
I wondered if this would be a problem, but it doesn't appear to affect
anything other than PPM installation. I'll check in with ActiveState
on this to see if there is a solution.
