problem with installing Perl Tk module on SuSe 9.0


I am trying to install the Perl Tk module on Suse 9.0. I followed the instructions in the REAME and INSTALL files.

I got stuck pretty much after untarring the thing when I am supposed to use the command:

perl Makefile.PL

it produces the following output:

/usr/bin/perl is installed in /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1/i586-linux-thread-multi okay
PPM for perl5.008001
Test Compiling config/signedchar.c
Test Compile/Run config/unsigned.c

Test Compiling -DTIMEOFDAY_NO_TZ config/tod.c
Test Compiling -DTIMEOFDAY_DOTS config/tod.c
Problem gettimeofday()
Using -L/usr/X11R6/lib to find /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6.2
Cannot find X include files via /usr/X11R6/include
Cannot find X include files anywhere at ./myConfig line 332.
Compilation failed in require at Makefile.PL line 36.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at Makefile.PL line 38.

---- there are suggestions on how to specify the include and lib, as follows:

If Makefile.PL reports that it cannot find X, or chooses a version
you don't like you can specify a version on the command line:

perl Makefile.PL X11=/usr/local/X11R5

If X's include and lib are not under a common parent they can be specified
separately:

perl Makefile.PL X11INC=/usr/local/share/X11R5/include X11LIB=/usr/local/arch/X11R5/lib


---- but nothing works.

am I stupid?

Thanks in advance

Maybe you need to install the XFree86-devel package first (I think it contains the missing X includes).

EDIT: I think there's also a rpm-package for perl-tk, btw.
