Someone just posted about the same problem last month, and it was a bad 
symlink to perl.  The original solution was:

I had a link the link /usr/bin/perl to /tools/usr/bin/perl that was 
created in Chapter 5.  I removed the link and pointed it to 
/usr/bin/perl5.8.0 and now it works, so far anyway.
