Thanks for replying shibu.

[root at tom razor-agents-2.84]# perl -MCPAN -e shell

There seems to be running another CPAN process (pid 23858).  Contacting...
Other job not responding. Shall I overwrite the lockfile? (Y/N) [y] y

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.7602)
ReadLine support enabled

cpan> install DBI
CPAN: Storable loaded ok
Going to read /root/.cpan/Metadata
   Database was generated on Sat, 10 Nov 2007 22:36:34 GMT
Running install for module DBI
Running make for T/TI/TIMB/DBI-1.601.tar.gz
CPAN: Digest::MD5 loaded ok
perl: symbol lookup error: 
undefined symbol: Perl_Gthr_key_ptr
[root at tom razor-agents-2.84]#

I can't find any other cpan shell running either but I get that msg each 
time it exits like this.
