y, I could have said "although X11 is there, I dont use it, or install
use it" Its supposed to work, but, it seems to be more work than joy
for multiple perls, I leave that up to those more experienced than I !
I have one, on 10.4 its 5.8.6, which seems fine to me..

ps - the Postgres package works really well
