Have you set the environment variable BLASTDIR to point to the directory
where blastall executable is located?  This should be in the documentation
but we probably need to do a better job making it more prominent.

--Volunteers to help improve POD and install documentation are welcomed!--

You can also add the following to your code which should work:

  $ENV{'BLASTDIR'} = 'C:\path\to\blast';
