Hmm, didn't see that, but I may have already installed it manually 
during the bootstrap.  Based on the error message, the problem is that 
the in-tree copy is not added to the search path during that command, 
and it probably should be; this should be raised upstream.

I do reassure you that building Perl modules is generally not that 
difficult; you just picked the exception to the rule. :-)
