I'm having serious trouble installing Math::Gsl through CPAN. If this isn't too far afield for this board, I'd really appreciate your thoughts on where I went astray. Before I get into those error messages, I'd like to provide some details on how I installed gsl itself (I am rather ignorant about compiling programs and I may have messed up at this stage).
I installed gsl-1.4 in my user directory (while logged in as root) of a machine running Fedora Core 3 by blindly following the instructions in the install file and executing the following commands:
1 gzip -d < gsl-1.4.tar.gz | tar xf -
2 ./configure ### the readout here was essentially gibberish to me... it took quite some time
4 make check < log2<&1 ### I checked the log file, and all tests appeared to PASS
5 make install
As far as I know... this worked, but I don't know how to explicitly test this.
Upon entering CPAN and attempting an install of Math-Gsl-0.8, I encounter the following errors during the make test:
1 t/1....Can't load '/root/.cpan/build/Math-Gsl-0.08/blib/arch/auto/Math/Gsl/Gsl.so' for module Math::Gsl: l ibgsl.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/i386-linux-t hread-multi/DynaLoader.pm line 230. at t/1.t line 7 Compilation failed in require at t/1.t line 7.

I'm guessing that the installation is unable to access Gsl, but I have no idea how to remedy the problem. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
