I am attempting to install the latest fwknop on the latest upgraded Ubuntu Server (2.6.24-18-server). I have build-essentials installed, but I don't know if fwknop requires that. Perhaps there are other libraries or Perl modules that I need to install first. During the attempted fwknop installation I get messages such as:
