First - please use daip at nrao.edu.  I have been on vacation and we do
have a systems expert who might have a more specific suggestion.

Second - 2.95.3 is a very old compiler.  3.4.4 is more recent.

Third - do you need to compile locally?  Try first the binary

        perl install.pl -n

The error above says that the source code expects certian include
files which are not present on your system.  Have you installed the
"developer" rpms (or whatever ubuntu calls them) for your system?
