Thank you for this, and I'm not certain that this is the only module I 
needed.  I'm reviewing the software installation for the exact modules 
missing.

Ah yes, here's the reason that I started back upon the Time::Local Module:

/usr/bin/pod2html: ./FS/FS/cust_bill.pm: cannot resolve 
L<perlfunc/"time"> in paragraph 242. at /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/Pod/Html.pm 
line 1562.
FS/cust_bill_event
/usr/bin/pod2html: ./FS/FS/cust_bill_event.pm: cannot resolve 
L<perlfunc/"time"> in paragraph 19. at /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/Pod/Html.pm 
line 1562.
FS/cust_bill_pay
/usr/bin/pod2html: ./FS/FS/cust_bill_pay.pm: cannot resolve 
L<perlfunc/"time"> in paragraph 20. at /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/Pod/Html.pm 
line 1562.
FS/cust_bill_pkg
/usr/bin/pod2html: ./FS/FS/cust_bill_pkg.pm: cannot resolve 
L<perlfunc/"time"> in paragraph 23. at /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/Pod/Html.pm 
line 1562.
FS/cust_credit

I have several of these issues:  Further investigation yields the 
following info:

=over 4

=item eventnum - primary key

=item invnum - invoice (see L<FS::cust_bill>)

=item eventpart - event definition (see L<FS::part_bill_event>)

=item _date - specified as a UNIX timestamp; see L<perlfunc/"time">.  
Also see
L<Time::Local> and L<Date::Parse> for conversion functions.

Should I be concerned with these errors?

Well attempting to build using sh Configure in the source code directory 
also hangs.

Does this information help?
