I agree with this.

Your mail makes me see that it's better to put up a bad gift-prerequisites 
package than none. I am not content with the install, currently (it is not 
conform with GNU guidelines). However, people have real trouble installing 
the stuff by hand. Filip, I tried to send you the stuff by mail, however, it 
is too big for your mailbox :-( . I will put it up on within the 
following 2 weeks  (I'm veeery busy).

> PS. Typing "help" at the CPAN prompt is also a good way to start  :)

I agree with that, also.
