That's cool.  I didn't know that you could do it on one line like that.  Do 
CPAN like this:

perl -MCPAN -e shell

and then do the command you want to do from an interactive shell.  "install 
Apache::Session" is a command I think that you will like to try.  

Then you will have a ton of extra debugging information to send us.

You aren't at that point.

Interesting.  I didn't use "fix testdeps", because debian had all of the 
modules there for me to "apt-get install".  :-)  I take it "make testdeps" 
has much less output now than it did before?
