With the new code repo that is setup, all *known* issues have been worked
out with the install, at least as far as FreeBSD is concerned ,,,
http://www.haxlash.org right now is running "out of the box" ...
I am currently looking into verifying that Perl 5.12.x works, as
apparently CentOS has that installed by default, but, again, on FreeBSD,
*so far*, all appears to be installing fine, where George is having issues
with the ParallelUA perl module ...
More feedback / bug reports always welcome though ...
