Well the first one doesn't work because you don't have pod2man installed. Do a google or freshmeat search, and install it.
The second one doesn't work because you are missing perl modules which it depends on. Install those perl modules first and all will be well.

Go to http://search.cpan.org and search for:
IO Wrap
MIME Body
That's how I found them.
pod2man should be included with perl, so do:
find / -name pod2man
and make sure the path is in your PATH environment variable

following your suggesion I was able to install

MIME/PARSER/FILER
Convert/TNEF

but still trying to install

Archieve/Zip

as you say...I search at my hard disk..

it says..

[root@pc2 /]# find / -name pod2man
/usr/bin/pod2man
/home/test/podlators-1.27/scripts/pod2man
/home/test/podlators-1.27/blib/script/pod2man
[root@pc2 /]#

I think pod2man is installed but not properly....or it is not in right path...

can I get a little help more...so that I can be able to install "Archieve/Zip"

I install perl-5.8.0-88 again but it does'nt work...

Well pod2man seems installed in the right place. Just check to make sure that /usr/bin is in your PATH variable (although I'm sure it will be) by doing "printenv" or "echo $PATH".
Since the message was only a warning, try doing "make" and see what happens.

Here is the output....

[root@pc2 /]# echo $PATH
/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:
/root/bin
[root@pc2 /]#

I tried to make and make test and make install....but same error..

I am also sure that there might be no problem...any alternate solution pls...

sorry for the same type of questions again...

Well, pod2man is in your path, so it should work. What happens when you type "pod2man --help"? I imagine it runs.
What errors are you getting when you try "make"? You only posted the warning you were getting with "perl Makefile.PL"

I'm sorry but I have no idea what's wrong. I tried downloading the file, and when I moved my pod2man so that it was no longer in my path, and did "perl Makefile.PL", I got no warnings or errors. It was fine on the make stage as well, so obviously pod2man wasn't being used.
The only warning I get is about missing dependencies, but this doesn't affect the build. I'm sorry, but I honestly don't know what's gone wrong here.

try this

try this:

bash# unset $LANG

or if that doesn't work

bash# unset LANG

and then

bash# make Makefile.PL

why not utilize CPAN from whitin perl
perl -MCPAN -e shell
cpan> install Perl::Package
is all that is needed, just insruct it to follow the dependencies during initial setup of CPAN and it will do its best to get you desired modules.
