DBD::Oracle with perl

I have read several of the posts out there on the DBD::Oracle issues a lot of you have had, so I went to Merihn's site and downloaded a binary copy of perl already built for hpux.
I downloaded perl5.8.6 since it was under the heading 11.11/64 bit which was what I was looking for. I installed it on /opt/perl64 - I then tried for the DBD::Oracle piece - it makes fine, but the make test fails
t/32xmltype.............ok 3/4Unsupported named object type for bind parameter at t/32xmltype.t line 71.
Test returned status 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00)

Is there anyone out there that can give me some advise or instructions on getting this installed.

Re: DBD::Oracle with perl

In my latest attempt I just used cpan using "force install DBD::Oracle".
"The difference between me and you? I will read the man page." and "Respect the hat." and "You could just do a search on ITRC, you don't need to start a thread on a topic that's been answered 100 times already." Oh, and "What. no points???"
