Well, ActiveState perl may be installed, but the error message would lead me to believe that either the installation dodn't quite work right or that some post-install step hasn't be done. The error message is quite explict in stating that the "install script hasn't been run".

sounds like you have a corrupted perl installation, at least is missing, which should be in /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.1/i586-linux

Best is to re-install perl.

Looking closer to the errors, I assume that you have not installed any development packages at all.
