Did you read the documentation for Crypt::SSLeay?

You must have OpenSSL installed before compiling this module. You can get the latest OpenSSL package from
Do you have OpenSSL installed?

    CountZero, thanks! I had not seen that. Can it be installed with cpan? This: 'cpan install Crypt::OpenSSL' doesn't seem to work. Sorry, I know I'm probably asking very basic questions.

      OpenSSL is not a perl package, so you cannot use cpan to install it. Just download it from the website, compile and install.

      This: 'cpan install Crypt::OpenSSL' doesn't seem to work

      Looks to me that you're using ActivePerl. There are ppm packages (only for 32-bit perls 5.6, 5.8, 5.10, 5.12, 5.14 and 5.16) at the bribes repo.
      If you have one of those perls, you can install Crypt::SSLeay by running:
      ppm install
      Tonight I'll build ppm packages for Crypt::SSLeay for the "missing" architectures and put them on the sisyphusion repo.

      Update: Crypt::SSLeay ppm packages now added to the sisyphusion repo.
