I *think* I recall seeing something like that on Mandrake, although it's
been a while. If I remember right, some (but not all) of the Perl headers
were in a separate package, perl-dev or something like that.
Use your package manager (packagedrake?) to see what perl* packages are
available on your install CDs.
