I need advice on installing Mail-Internet.

My perl is simply unzipped ActivePerl-5.6.1.638-MSWin32-x86.zip
(C:\Perl\...) and I'd like to run CPAN shell to install Mail-Internet.

I googled for this due to this: I'm running perl scripts from DOS
(testing STAT antispam/virus for mercury/32 IMAP server running on
this host) and I'm getting the below error:
Can't locate auto/Mail/Internet/autosplit.ix in @INC (@INC contains:
c:/Perl/lib c:/Perl/site/lib .) at c:/Perl/lib/AutoLoader.pm line 146.

When I run CPAN install (from cygwin or DOS) I get the errors below.

Any advice for me?

TIA
Jaz

Running make test
Can't test without successful make
Running make install

install. Worked fine. Go figure(??)

No "make test"? Risky.
