Perl 5.6.1 under Cygwin: rules-dbm test fails

 Perl 5.6.1 under Cygwin: rules-dbm test fails

I'm using Perl-5.6.1 under Cygwin, and trying to use the CPAN module to
get some modules.  I'm using the older version because with Perl 5.8.0,
there are numerous crashes, particularly when using perldoc, so I
downgraded.  I'm using Cygwin on Windows 95.

Anyway, I'm having trouble with the LWP module.  Under the CPAN shell
(perl -MCPAN -e shell), I do "install LWP", and the rules-dbm tests fail.
Is there a dependancy it doesn't know about that's causing this, or is it
a factor of Cygwin?

Also, it also fails on module "CPAN" when i do "install Bundle::CPAN", but
doesn't show anymore helpful information.

Google searches turned up occurances of the first problem, but no
solutions for them.

So, does anyone know why this is happening, or even better, how to fix it?
