[Bioperl-l] Error during installation of 1.6.1

Is it really "q install q" ? Then you probably need to do some cpan
configuring. It's possible your original CPAN/Config.pm file is 
lost or not where cpan expects it to be after your upgrade.
Try this

$ cpan
cpan> o conf make /usr/bin/make
cpan> o conf make_install_make_command /usr/bin/make
cpan> o conf commit

and rerun the install. If you get other strangeness, I would check
the values of all the config variables by listing with

cpan> o conf

BTW, by the message I infer you've got v1.93 of CPAN; maybe
upgrading to the current version (v1.9402) would solve some problems.
