Apparently, you are correct, I failed to get a good build trying to
compile from source, but I did get a working setup by removing all of the
original install, and installing the perl-5.00503-2.i386.rpm and
perl-Tk-800.015-1.i386.rpm from rpmfind. Binaries, but seem to be working
fine on my system.
Thanks for everyones help with this.
