I tried installing the DBI for perl and I noted the following problems,
all the make commands worked fine
perl Makefile.PL command returned the following message
setting up the DBD
The optional PlRPC-modules (RPC::PlServer etc) are not installed.
If you want to use the DBD::Proxy driver and DBI::ProxyServer
modules, then you'll need to install the RPC::PlServer, RPC::PlClient,
Storable and Net::Daemon modules. The DBI CPAN Bundle may help you.
You can install them any time after installing the DBI.
You do *not* need these modules for typical DBI usage.
Optional modules are available from any CPAN mirror, in particular
Writing Makefile for DBI
Remember to actually *read* the README file!
Build, TEST and INSTALL Perl 5 first.
Do NOT build the DBI under the Perl source tree.
Use 'make test' to execute self tests.
Use 'make install' to install the DBI and then delete this working
make test all worked fine
make test TEST_VERBOSE=1 returned
Testing handle creation speed...
5000 NullP statement handles cycled in 1.8 cpu+sys seconds (2727 per sec)
make install command returned
error message for make install

I am installing the DBI in my local directory so is there any way of
changing the installation path
or is that what i need to do
Perl 5.004.04 is currently installed
