I suspect that it's a missing Perl module. If you check the download link at http://batleth.sapienti-sat.org/projects/mb2md/#Download it states that this program requires TimeDate.

It's very likely that this Perl module is part of your Linux distribution, and you just have to install it. If you don't find it on your installation CDs, you can download it from here: http://www.perl.com/CPAN/modules/by-module/Time/TimeDate-1.16.tar.gz

Ahhh geeeeeeeze. I fill like a heaping pile of steamy smelly $h!t  today :)
How embarrassing.
I didn't even notice that it said it required that perl module.

Thanks again.
