Small issue at installation here - I have Perl 5.8.9 installed, and I
got this error:

Perl v5.10.1 required--this is only v5.8.9, stopped at ./Makefile.PL line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at ./Makefile.PL line 1.

The Makefile specifies PERL_CONFIGURE=5.8.0+, though.  I'll upgrade Perl
and try it again.

Thank you,
