Mis-typed the actual command I used. I did use the lower-case "make" in 
my attempts.

The weird thing to me - and, again, I'm very new at this - is that 
every Perl module that's been installed on my machine has been 
installed using the MCPAN auto install method in order to properly deal 
with module dependencies and such, and every installation up until this 
one has gone smoothly (as far as I can tell, anyway) so I'm not sure 
why, suddenly, the installer is unable to find the mysql_config file 
when it has apparently had no problem finding in the past.

Using the "locate mysql_config" command, I immediately located the 
mysql_config file. I can try to set "PATH" variables and such but why 
would it suddenly be necessary now when it hasn't been for the other 
modules I've installed using the same method?

Something else that seems weird to me; when I do a find for every file 
ending in ".pm" I get a list of 697 files, many of which appear to be 
duplicates in different directories (same name, modification date and 
file size but residing in different directories). Isn't the MCAPN auto 
install method supposed to be properly installing these modules in 
their correct directories?

Frankly, I don't know enough about Mac OSX *NIX  or Perl and its 
modules to be able to look at my directories and determine if they're 
located where they should be, and I wouldn't have the first clue about 
how to go about moving the modules to the correct locations and 
eliminating unnecessary duplicates manually.
