Hey Ernesto,

I'm pretty sure you've got BioPerl version 1.6.0, which is actually  
more current than 1.5.2 that you were looking for.

Due to oddities of Perl version numbers, 1.006 = 1.6.0 (or something  
like that).

So I think you're probably good to go.

I should also mention that direct installation (i.e. not via fink)  
works pretty well these days, and through that you can get the current  
BioPerl release, which is 1.6.2 (or 1.006002000000000).
