Exclamation perl module install issues

Perl version is 5.8.8 and the problem is that some of the installed modules are not being seen. All the modules that are in the /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 directory are not seen even though perllocal.pod points to them. perl -MMail::Internet -e1 && echo module found returns:

Can't locate Mail/Internet.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /opt/bin/lib
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/x86_64-linux-thread-multi /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl .).
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

perldoc -l Mail::Internet returns 'No documentation found...'

I'm at a loss here and need some help!

I assume you are trying to install/build/configure the module directly from what is available on CPAN. If so, you are making more work for yourself given that the Mail::Internet & related modules are already found in OpenBSD's package/ports system:


If you are unfamiliar, study Section 15 of the FAQ:

Installing perl modules from ports/packages are the only supported method, you're really on your own if you attempt to do things any other way.
