If the installation fails because there is no C compiler on the machine, the error message is somewhat obscure. IMHO, it would be better if it also produced a specific test failure.

Please note that these paths (set with PERL5LIB or PERLLIB) are not honored by perl when running under taint mode, which may lead to problems.
