[ID 20000323.051] Perl 5.6 and DBI install failure

I was setting up a Linux Redhat 6.1 server earlier today and part of it was
prepping perl for use with DBI.  Did the ole 'perl -MCPAN -e shell' and
installed the recommended like I usually do and didn't notice that some of
the ones that I usually update were attached to the latest greatest 5.6
distribution and found myself running through the perl install.  I figured
it could do much harm (or at least could be any worse than 5.004...).
Anyways, things started out pretty smoothly untill I went to set up the DBI
module.  Then these nasty errors popped up (they appear to be standard
modules and I was told I had they were "already updated").  See as follows:

===========================
[....omitted.....]
t/proxy.............Constant subroutine __need___va_list undefined at
/usr/lib/perl5/5.00503/i386-linux/stdarg.ph line 9.

/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/i386-linux/Term/ReadKey.pm line 305.
Unable to get Terminal Size. The TIOCGWINSZ ioctl didn't work. The COLUMNS
and LINES environment variables didn't work. The resize program didn't work.

make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 1
  /usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
Running make install
  make test had returned bad status, won't install without force

==============================

This module has been a breeze to install in the past.    If I'm not
submitting this to the right place, I'd appreciate be pointed in the right
direction.  BTW, I got this same error running install within the CPAN shell
and a standard unix bourne shell.  This has always been a painless install
before, so I'm only ASSuming that the 5.6 distribution is the culprit.

Thanx in advance...
