PDF::Template not finding pdflib-lite install

ksublondie has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm trying to get my PDF::Template linux installation to recognize the prerequisite pdflib_pl. I've downloaded and installed the pdflib-lite (which according to the only installation documentation I can find is supposed to work), but it's not recognizing it. When I run perl Makefile.PL for the PDF::Template installation, I get: Warning: prerequisite pdflib_pl 3 not found but it continues to install anyway. Trying to install through cpan fails instead. When I run a script using PDF::Template, I get Can't locate pdflib_pl.pm in @INC .

I did the standard ./configure, make, make install on the pdflib-lite. Is there anything I should have done differently? I'm not finding any installation instructions with either PDF::Template or pdflib-lite. The only installation solutions google produces are to install pdflib-lite which I've already done. I see a pdflib_pl.pm file in both the pdflib-lite and the PDF::Template installation package, but I can't find where it may have installed it.

Sorry, I only know enough about *nix to be dangerous.

    I had the same problem but in /doc/pdflib/readme-source-unix.txt ... If you want to install only selected parts (e.g., only the PDFlib C library or the Perl support), type "make install" in the respective subdirectory (e.g, bind/pdflib/perl). looks like a "must do it this way" for perl ./PDFlib-Lite-7.0.5p3 cd ./bind/pdflib/perl make install works fine lg
