[Bioperl-l] Build install

As the error says, it can't create the directory as you don't have
permission to make changes to /Library/Perl/5.12/. Judging by that path
I'm guessing you're on a Mac. In which case you want to do something
like 'sudo ./Build install' or read the directions on installing BioPerl
in your own specified directory.

Dear Bioperl,

I made it to the step ./Build install, but then I received this error:

ERROR: Can't create '/Library/Perl/5.12/Bio'
mkdir /Library/Perl/5.12/Bio: Permission denied at
/System/Library/Perl/5.12/ExtUtils/Install.pm line 494

Do you know what the problem is?

Thank you
