I tried what you suggested and perl --version comes back and says it is version
5.005_03 built for i386 linux.

My PATH environment variable includes /usr/bin as always. I can execute gmake
or make from a konsole with the makefiles generated by kdevelop. It's just
within kdevelop things don't work. I guess I'll have to use version 1.0 until I
figure this out.
