It looks like you didn't install it at all, you simply untarred the
distribution into /usr/bin.   Did you follow the instructions in the
README file?  Which are, basically:

	perl Makefile.PL
	make
	make test
	make install

Then, you'll also need the Data-Dumper module (which you should
install prior to DBI), and the Msql-Mysql-modules module (which you
should install after DBI.

See the MySQL reference manual for Perl support installation instructions.
