( This message is aimed for the archives and anyone trying to solve a
  particular problem.  It contains broad advice )

If you are attempting to install any of the perl modules listed in the
subject line, please remember to have installed the include files and
libraries that may be an optional part of the software package.

Some, well-known, OS distributions offer you a choices of binary-only,
binary-with-include, binary-with-lib (etc) installations of a given
software package.  For RT, these software packages are generally Apache
and MySQL

Please install the software package *with* the include files and *with*
the libraries.

You may not to be able to install certain perl modules (CPAN) without the
software package's include and library files.  Installing these may solve
your problems.

Linux 'binary' packages are the main culprits in this regards.
