You did it yourself, see below. >>Note that the Berkeley-DB library (from the db41 port) and the Perl >>interface thereto (DB_File) are two different things. >> > > I installed the db41 but after that was done, i went into the perl > subdir, fixed up config.in and ran the perl installation.

This will also create that port. I didn't know that DB_File is part of the Berkeley-DB distribution. So there are many ways to get at DB_File: * It is included in Perl itself. (Perhaps you have to install the db41 port first, and then the Perl port.) * perl -MCPAN -e shell * Do like you did. This is all quite confusing.
