Description of problem:
Here is a snippit from the Makefile created with the command "perl Makefile.PL" for the Digest::MD5 package (notice the messed up 
lines, some cut off, some with single ticks and such):

I've updated to Phoebe 8.0.94 and the bug persists.  Is there anything i can 
provide to help with solving this issue?  I'm getting strange errors with 
logwatch and awstats also, both items that use perl.  The logwatch problem is 
that I receive 1 email detailing the logwatch report, and a second about how it 
failed mailing emails to Logwatch@host  for@host and host@host.  The awstats is 
that the page created by perl has all sorts of errors at the top.  Any ideas?
Comment 2 Wade Minter 2003-02-28 21:10:12 EST
I'll verify that I see this same problem.
Comment 3 Zach Gelnett 2003-02-28 21:15:49 EST
Ok, I've found a way to get around this:  Use the perl module in webmin to 
install the cpan stuff.  Now, i dont know why webmin install works and the 
standard install doesnt but this does get around it (altho i do prefer command 
line).
Comment 4 Zach Gelnett 2003-04-03 09:54:46 EST
I continue to get this error in RH 9.  Any ideas?
Comment 5 Zach Gelnett 2003-04-03 22:06:28 EST
Clear out the LANG variable and it will fix the issue.
