Walkthrough for the Perl compile problem?
Message ID:
I see there was a big discussion of this back in October,
 but I couldn't find a canonical answer. 

In OS X 10.1.2, I'm following the web server tutorial at

When I twiddle with CPAN (1.5.2) it says I should get 1.5.9.
 When I "install Bundle::CPAN" it tries to recompile Perl.
 When it does its big make thing, it fails.

The net result is that I can't install any CPAN bundles.
 What steps am I doing wrong, and how do I fix it?

Also, Apple says that with their default Apache running,
 I should be able to use the default CGIs. However,
 http://localhost/printenv returns a 404 for me.
 What's going wrong?
