Assuming you have the 'make utility, the usual sequence is:

perl Makefile.PL  (this creates Makefile for you)
make
make test
make install

Also, from ther readme:
------------------------------------------------

To install Expect you will also need IO::Stty which will be in the same
directory as you found this package, currently at ftp://ftp.habit.com/pub/perl.
You will also need IO::Tty which can be found in Graham Barr's directory on any
CPAN site.
