[rt-users] Pubcookie auth

Sorry about the lack of information.  Here is the story.  I have 
pubcookie installed and working with apache.  I have Ubuntu 8.10.3 
installed and RT 3.8.4 installed - both work.  I installed 
RT::Authen::ExternalAuth via cpan successfully (shows up under the 
plugins dir).  I then add Set(@Plugins,(qw(RT::Authen::ExternalAuth))); 
to my RT_SiteConfig.pm and apache2 goes boom.  I get this error in the 
apache log:

[error] Can't load Perl file: /opt/rt3/bin/webmux.pl for server 
xxxxxxxx:0, exiting...

I am no perl wizard so I am sure I am just doing something stupid.  
Again, I remove the plugin from RT_SiteConfig.pm and it works.

I am just missing something?
