Dear Roy,

DreamHost uses Debian, so you can suggest them to install the Debian package.
If you are in contact with the tech service, do not hesitate to tell them to
contact me if they are interested by a backport of the 1.6.0 package. For
version 1.6.1, it may be more difficult as it depends on perl 5.10.1.

PS: if you propse to install BioPerl as a feature in the Dreamhost panel, I
will vote for it :)

Have a nice day,
