LWP won't work

I'm having a problem getting lwp(libwww-perl) to work so I ran the command:
perl -e "use LWP::UserAgent;"

This returned:

Can't locate LWP/UserAgent.pm in @INC (@INC contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/mach /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0/BSDPAN /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0/mach /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.0 .) at -e line 1.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at -e line 1.

Is there anyway I can fix this? I just installed it from the ports. I did the same thing a few days ago on another server and it worked perfectly. Any ideas anybody?

it looks like something is not quite good with your perl installation.  At least the @INC is not configured properly.

Quickest that I can suggest would be try to reinstall the perl.

You could try to tweak the setting (i knew this could be done), but could not suggest you the right component to try:

Maybe try to crosspost (or request for this Q to be moved to PERL area) which you may get a quicker feedback : http://www3.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/Perl/
