in reply to Trying -- and failing -- to install modules from cpan

The following (from your output) may be a clue as to what is occurring (lines 13 and following):

Using Tar:/usr/bin/tar x1f "Chart-Gnuplot-0.17.tar":
Usage:
  List:    tar -tf <archive-filename>
  Extract: tar -xf <archive-filename>
  Create:  tar -cf <archive-filename> filenames...
  Help:    tar --help
Couldn't untar Chart-Gnuplot-0.17.tar

My guess would be that it is trying to use 'tar x1f filename.tar' to extract it, but that the version of tar on your system requires a '-' on options (thus, 'tar -xf filename.tar'). How to fix that, though, I am not sure (but hope others may be able to suggest).

Hope that helps.
