ReadLine support available (maybe install Bundle::CPAN or Bundle::CPANxxl?)

cpan> install PatchReader

Well, that error would tell me that you don't have tar, gzip and bzip2 installed. Do you in fact have them installed? What distribution are you running?

The perl module "perl-Term-Readline-Gnu" seems missing.
