Question lsdvd - gtk2-perl help please

I thought I finally got gtk-perl installed, but now when I try to install lsdvd, I get the following:

[root@localhost lsdvd-0.10]# make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/acidrip/lsdvd-0.10'
/bin/sh ./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/bin
/usr/bin/install -c lsdvd /usr/local/bin/lsdvd
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install-data-am'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/acidrip/lsdvd-0.10'

So when I tried to get acidrip installed, I got :

[root@localhost acidrip-0.11]# perl Makefile.PL
Checking for Gtk2.. failed
Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.1/i686-lin
ux /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.1 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1/i686-linux /u
sr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.1 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at (eval 2)
line 3.

Gtk2 is needed, it implements the perl bindings to Gtk+2.
The module is called Gtk2-Perl on CPAN or module gnome-perl in the Gnome CVS.
In the future acidrip will be able to run from a command line, so this will not
be mandatory.
This has not been implemented yet though.
We need at least version 0.98
The missing modules can be obtained from CPAN. Visit
<URL:> to find a CPAN site near you.

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Writing Makefile for AcidRip

Running additional test to be sure acidrip will work
test for lsdvd: Not Found!

AcidRip needs my little app "lsdvd" in order to see what is on your dvd's
Download it and install it (and libdvdread) before trying to use AcidRip.
If it's simply not on your path then set the full path inside AcidRip.

So I went looking for Gtk2-Perl, and I found many different pieces, and don't know what I need. On sourceforge I found a few different packages. Which ones do I need?


Thanks to any and all Help.
