Joel Fentin wrote about trying to install DBD::mysql.  Sorry, I don't have
an answer, but have another question.  The "soap" part of the directory path
bothers me a little bit.  Is DBD::mysql trying to use 
Simple Object Access Protocol (another morsel from Sir Bill of Redmond)?  If
so, there may be a problem
if you also need PerlEx (if I remember correctly, this is a costly item).
PerlEx supports SOAP but I don't
know if that's the only way. See

SOAP is pretty new.  In the software business we know what that can mean.

Joel, I suspect that you got your stuff from Active State.  They have a
mailing list like this one.
To sign up (maybe you will get a greater number of educated eyeballs looking
at the problem) look at the bottom of the page at
