    I thought the below would do a force installation of a CPAN module on
    Solaris 10 x86 but it still says it won't install without force. What is
    the command syntax???

    perl -MCPAN -e'force install "DBD::mysql"'
    Failed 1/34 test scripts, 97.06% okay. 6/687 subtests failed, 99.13% okay.
    gmake: *** [test_dynamic] Error 29
    /usr/sfw/bin/gmake test -- NOT OK
    Running make install
    make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
