Yeah, it's messed up. CPAN wanted to install perl 5.6.1, and then all this
other stuff. A real mess. I had to blow away the perl libs and install them
off a backup. Everything works fine now.......
Kinda a little off the subject, but, my FreeBSD system has Perl 5.003 and
5.6.0 on it. Should I only have 5.6.1 perl? If so, are there any good reads
about how to get rid of the other older versions?
