You are running these as root or with elevated rights
sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install MARC::File::XML;'
sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Data::Random;'
sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install PDF::Reuse::Barcode;'
sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install ZOOm;'

On ZOOM left to be installed, I managed to compile the rest.  I use centos but the error talk about Ubunto.

This is the error code I am getting:

perl -MCPAN -e 'install "ZOOM"'


Removing previously used /root/.cpan/build/Net-Z3950-ZOOM-1.28

  CPAN.pm: Going to build M/MI/MIRK/Net-Z3950-ZOOM-1.28.tar.gz

ERROR: Unable to call script: yaz-config
If you are using a YAZ installation from the Debian package "yaz", you
will also need to install "libyaz-dev" in order to build this module.
