Perl Version 5.8.5

Redhat 9

Mailscanner 4.40.11



I'm performing a fresh install of Mailscanner on a Redhat 9 box and am
getting the following errors when running the ./ ignore-perl


I’ve installed on FreeBSD before, but this is my first run at it on
a Linux system.  I’ve installed all of the perl modules listed
below using CPAN so I’m stumped.


Thanks for the help,
