Problem installing Win32::SerialPort

Hello World!

I get this error when trying to install Win32::SerialPort from the active
state suppository. I checked their website, and it said that it works with
perl 5.6...

D:\Perl\lib>ppm install Win32::SerialPort
Installing package 'Win32-SerialPort'...
Error installing package 'Win32-SerialPort': Read a PPD for
'Win32-SerialPort', but it is not intended for this build of Perl

D:\Perl\lib>perl -v

This is perl, v5.6.1 built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread
(with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail)

Copyright 1987-2001, Larry Wall

Binary build 632 provided by ActiveState Corp.
Built 03:40:44 Jun 3 2002

What do I need to do to be able to install this module?
