in reply to What is the /auto/ directory used for?

The /auto directory is used by code that uses AutoLoader to only load subroutines when they are actually used. See also AutoSplit.

In this case it looks like you have an improperly installed module. From the function being accessed it is trying to implement some sort of tie. If I were to take a wild guess, I'd guess Tie::DBI. But that probably isn't right.
