It appears that you have version 4 of the Perl utility rather than
version 5.  You must have version 5 in order to build the Perl extension
module for UDUNITS (see file INSTALL for more information).  

You can either install version 5 of Perl and then retry or skip building
the Perl extension module altogether.  If you decide to skip building
the extension module, then do the following:

    1.  Go to the top-level source directory of the UDUNITS package.

    2.  Perform steps 3 through 5 in the "IF PROBLEMS OCCUR" section
        in the INSTALL file.

    3.  Set the environment variable PERL to the empty string.

    4.  Perform steps 6 through 9 in the "IF PROBLEMS OCCUR" section
        in the INSTALL file.
