if you haven't installed all the dependencies you could end up in problems.

http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?Name=Math-GSL
checkout the bugs reported, and if it relevant to you and not yet solved, better look for other alternatives or contact the author.

    Thanks for your answers. What I did was to go through all dependencies (bottom up) to discover which of the dependencies is causing the problem. For example, for a dependency of Test::Class I get:
    cpan5> install Devel::Symdump
    Running install for module 'Devel::Symdump'
    Running make for A/AN/ANDK/Devel-Symdump-2.08.tar.gz
    Prepending blib/arch and blib/lib of 20 build dirs to PERL5LIB; for 'get'
    Has already been unwrapped into directory /home/sagiv/.cpan/build/Devel-Symdump-2.08-HnrO85
    Prepending blib/arch and blib/lib of 20 build dirs to PERL5LIB; for 'make'
    Has already been made
    Prepending blib/arch and blib/lib of 20 build dirs to PERL5LIB; for 'test'
    Running make test
    Has already been tested successfully
    Running make install
    Already tried without success

    How can I figure out what the problem is? I went through the list of reported problems but I don't think it's connected to mine. Thanks!
      I forgot to add that when I do try to install Test::Class I get the following output (sorry, a bit long):
      cpan2> install Test::Class
      Running install for module 'Test::Class'
      Running Build for A/AD/ADIE/Test-Class-0.31.tar.gz

      make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
      Failed during this command:
      ADIE/Test-Class-0.31.tar.gz : make_test NO

        This means that Test::Class fails its tests, and in a bad way. This seems to be because Test::More changed the texts it outputs: http://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=47060.

        If you feel adventurous, you can try force-installing Test::Class and hope that it's only the tests that are failing and not the module.
