I can't install DBI module for perl.
I've got this message:

Re: DBI install with PERL

If you have gnuc, and gnu-binutils, then I have found the cpan shell much easier to use than manual builds.

# perl -MCPAN -e shell
CPAN> install bundle DBI

You can also use a force option.
Make sure you have the default locations for perl, gnu gcc, and bin-utils and all should go well!
