in reply to Problem installing Perl modules

The perl you use to execute the Makefile.PL indicates the perl instance (where multiple may exist) you want to build the module for.

This is why the Makefile.PL files are not executable.

Try this and see what happens.

/opt/ActivePerl-5.8/bin/perl Makefile.PL

If it is still not working, that means that the ActivePerl installation does not have a toolchain where it expects it to be (I believe there's a $Config entry for this).

It is relatively normal for ActivePerl to not come with a full toolchain. You are expected, as I understand it, to use the ActivePerl PPM binary packages, rather than building modules yourself...

(I don't like it)
