Trying to install the CPAN module File::MMagic with a fresh install of
debian testing. It fails with the following error messages. Any idea
what is wrong?

Tried installing it manually in bash but got the same error so I looked
in the MakeFile.pl and saw the line

use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;

Figuring this might be the problem I installed that package manually
and then tried File::MMagic again. It installed fine.

No idea why it defaults to a broken state though.
