Can anyone tell me why this is happening and/or how to fix it. I'm running
FreeSBD 2.2.1 straight outta the box and PERL will not let me use external
packages. I can't run anything that uses

use <package name>;

Lets say I use "perl -e 'use Config; print $Config{libs}'"
output from this command is:

syntax error in file /tmp/perl-e010279 at line 1, next 2 tokens "use Config"
Execution of /tmp/perl-e010279 aborted due to compilation errors.

This is using the straight off the FreeBSD CD PERL install. Anybody have
any clue as to why this is happening???? I need to use the GD library and I
can't with this happening.

Thanks for any help,

Jason DeFillippo
