I am trying to install BioPerl (after a recent system upgrade) and am
getting the following error:

"Catching error: "Can't execute q install q: No such file or directory at
/Library/Perl/Updates/5.8.8/CPAN/Shell.pm line 1755\cJ" at
/Library/Perl/Updates/5.8.8/CPAN.pm line 391".

Previous to this I've run the CPAN upgrade, etc. as recommended on the
Installation for Unix page. This happens when I try to do the actual
install, both vanilla and "force"ed. I'm attempting this on a Mac G5
workstation running 10.5.8. Any clues what I may be missing or doing
