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

I cannot understand why WWW::Mechanize::Sleepy does not find WWW::Mechanize on my machine.

Compiling from Scratch

root@jasmines:/usr/local/src/WWW-Mechanize-Sleepy-0.5# perl Makefile.P +L If you are testing: - for 'make test' to work you must be connected to the Internet - expect 'make test' to take some time since it tests sleepiness Warning: prerequisite WWW::Mechanize 0.58 not found. Writing Makefile for WWW::Mechanize::Sleepy root@jasmines:/usr/local/src/WWW-Mechanize-Sleepy-0.5# locate Mechaniz /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/WWW/

One-liner to Test

root@jasmines:/usr/local/src/WWW-Mechanize-Sleepy-0.5# perl -wle 'use +WWW::Mechanize 99' WWW::Mechanize version 99 required--this is only version 1.18 at -e li +ne 1. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at -e line 1.

Version 1.18 should be sufficient, right?

I've tried everything. Other modules are failing to install for CPAN for similar reasons. What might cause something like this?
