Can't use any Perl programs in MAndrake? PLEASE HELP!


I am trying to install Perl programs but none of them work.

When I am trying to install the Gtk I get this:

[root@localhost root]# cd /home/matt/Gtk-0.5120
[root@localhost Gtk-0.5120]# perl Makefile.PL
Configuring Perl/Gtk+... Note that additional packages can be added
by giving switches to Makefile.PL, including:


We are going to guess some packages, if we guess wrong just use
the flags above but change "with" to "without".

Unfortunately, these packages aren't terribly smart, and you may need
to tweak the resultant Makefile or the */pkg*.pl files to properly
locate the files needed for a package.

You may also use '--lazy-load', which will reduce initial memory usage
and loading time, at the cost of some internal glitches.

gnome-config not found!
If you did not enable any gnome options, you can ignore the above message
sh: line 1: gcc: command not found
Unable to find Gtk version...
Invoking with [].
Please wait, this may take a moment...
LIBS=-L/usr/X11R6/lib -lgtk -lgdk -lglib -lX11 -lXext
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good

Error: Unable to locate installed Perl libraries or Perl source code.

It is recommended that you install perl in a standard location before
building extensions. Some precompiled versions of perl do not contain
these header files, so you cannot build extensions. In such a case,
please build and install your perl from a fresh perl distribution. It
usually solves this kind of problem.

(You get this message, because MakeMaker could not find "/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.1/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE/perl.h")

Does anyone know what I can do about this?

I'm using a new clean install of Mandrake 9.2
