I have just installed Bioperl on my Linux system using the CPAN install. The 
install summary is as follows:
Test Summary Report

  make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
Failed during this command:
 CJFIELDS/BioPerl-1.6.1.tar.gz                : make_test NO

Is Bioperl properly installed? During the install process I was getting quite 
a lot of this error (100's of instances):
'replacement list longer than search list . This happened with t/tools, t/seq 
/ t/search and many others.

Any advice would be great.
