Did you install all required Perl-modules before running ./configure? If you
check the line 820 on Makefile.PL you'll find this: use Getopt::Long. Maybe
that module is missing or outdated? What I did on my ISP:s machine was that
I installed all Perl modules locally (one thing was to change the PERL5LIB
environment variable to eg. /home/myhome/mylocalperl). I don't remember
exactly what I did, but all required modules are installed into my own
