Question perl modules not recognized

I've been trying to install a couple RPMs these past few days and I keep getting dependencies problems, it always says that I am missing a perlmodule that i have installed multiple times. Is there something i need to do beyond the standard perl module installation to get it to recoginse? i've been doing:
perl Make.pl
make test
make install
I've never seen any error pop up when trying to install the modules but when ever i go to install a RPM that requires them it says it doesn't exist.... I'm wondering if my problem may be related to using rpm's designed for FC1 on an FC2 system? Are they really so differnet that they wouldn't be able to recognise the existing perl modules?

any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

rpm only knows about software that was installed via RPM so if you have an RPM package that depends on a specific Perl module then it is expecting that Perl module to be registered in the RPM database. Installing from source like you are does not register the module in the RPM database. I can give you an exact suggestion if you let me know what exact RPM you are trying to install and what perl module it requires.

ah, thank you void main, that explains it. I just ended up installing the rest by source though.
