Perl install LWP module ; problems ...


I'm trying to install the LWP Perl module on a gentoo server but i'm running into problems with cpan. I just type 'install LWP' and it seems okay up until the end where it does something goofy with 'base/message' (whatever that is).

Here's the output of 'install LWP':

This package comes with some sample programs that I can try
to install in /usr/bin.

Note that you can avoid these questions by passing
the '-n' option to 'Makefile.PL'.

Do you want to install lwp-request? [y]
Do you want to install lwp-mirror? [y]
Do you want to install lwp-rget? [y]
Do you want to install lwp-download? [y]

The lwp-request program will use the name it is invoked with to
determine what HTTP method to use. I can set up alias for the most
common HTTP methods. These alias are also installed in
/usr/bin.

Do you want to install the GET alias? [n]
Do you want to install the HEAD alias? [n]
Do you want to install the POST alias? [n]

Checking for URI........... ok
Checking for HTML::Parser.. ok
Checking for MIME::Base64.. ok
Checking for Net::FTP...... ok
Checking for Digest::MD5 .. ok

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good

I also noticed this message in the output from my original posting: "Warning: prerequisite Compress::Zlib 1.10 not found.". But I find this to not be true. Compress::Zlib is installed and I verified by running the command 'cpan Compress::Zlib'. Here's the output:
>>>

More info...

When I CD into /root/.cpan/build/libwww-perl-5.805-eFDJMm/ and then run the command 'perl Makefile.PL', I get this output:
>>>
GreenOrange libwww-perl-5.805-eFDJMm # perl Makefile.PL

This package comes with some sample programs that I can try
to install in /usr/bin.

Note that you can avoid these questions by passing
the '-n' option to 'Makefile.PL'.

Do you want to install lwp-request? [y]
Do you want to install lwp-mirror? [y]
Do you want to install lwp-rget? [y]
Do you want to install lwp-download? [y]

The lwp-request program will use the name it is invoked with to
determine what HTTP method to use. I can set up alias for the most
common HTTP methods. These alias are also installed in
/usr/bin.

Do you want to install the GET alias? [n]
Do you want to install the HEAD alias? [n]
Do you want to install the POST alias? [n]

Checking for URI........... ok
Checking for HTML::Parser.. ok
Checking for MIME::Base64.. ok
Checking for Net::FTP...... ok
Checking for Digest::MD5 .. ok

Warning: prerequisite Compress::Zlib 1.10 not found.

Again, it says that I am missing Compress::Zlib module but I can verify it's there by this output:
>>>

CPAN: Storable loaded ok (v2.15)

If it helps, I was just able to install XML::Simple just fine. So why wouldn't LWP install?
