I did some additional testing and I am unable to get Device::SerialPort
to install using cpan on Fedora 12, but it works perfectly on Centos 5.4

On the Fedora system I am getting :
/usr/bin/perl Makefile.PL' returned status 512, won't make

I plan to use Centos for this project, but was doing some testing with
Fedora in the beginning.
