> Hello,
> My name is David Stites.  I downloaded the latest version of interchange
> (4.6.0) in tarball format.  I run a UNIX FreeBSD server and I uploaded the
> tarball to my public_html and I unzipped it.  I chdir into the interchange
> directory and I try to run the ./configure @ the command line.  However I
> get an error.  I try to run the perl Makefile.PL and I get the same error.
> I have all the system requirements (perl and DB).  I also tried uploading it
> to my root (/user21/home/bigdaves/ and I got the same error.
> My path is 
> (user21/home/bigdaves/public_html)
> public_html is my public directory where I upload my files so that they are
> accessible to the Internet.
> When I ask where perl is I get
> % whereis perl
> perl: /usr/bin/perl /usr/share/man/man1/perl.1.gz /usr/src/gnu/usr.bin/perl
> When I ask where mysql is I get
> % whereis mysql
> mysql: /usr/local/bin/mysql /usr/local/man/man1/mysql.1.gz
> The error is
> Found Perl 5.00503 as /usr/bin/perl
> If you get a CPAN error, rerun the configuration and it
