    which you could have figured out all by yourself if you had just followed the advice to run with DEBUG=1.

      Hi Thanks for your suggestion,
      below is the DEBUG=1 included output Thanks,

        libxml2 not found
        Do you notice something? Why did you change the LIBS parameter? It's wrong now.

    I need to install Apache::Pagekit module...

    For the love of all that is holy and sacred, why? If you need to migrate a legacy system then I feel your pain but if you're starting from scratch please run far and fast from this "hasn't been updated in 9 years" framework into something a bit more modern like Catalyst or something built upon starman. The mod_perl/XML pipelines had their day and I, for one, am thankful they're over.

    libxml2 is not by itself a Perl library. XML::LibXML is simply a wrapper around the interface it provides. Therefore, you must install libxml2 to your system first. Your command lines suggest the usage of GNU/Linux. If this is indeed so, then you can use your distribution's package manager(zypper, yum, apt, or others) to quickly install libxml2. In your case, you should ask your system administrator.
    If no such system is available, then you must download the sources from their website. Then, when running the configure script, specify --prefix to be somewhere in your home directory.

    That possibility was already hinted at in the dump you provided. You might want to read it, you know. ;-)

    "Excuse me for butting in, but I'm interrupt-driven..."
      I downvoted your answer because the question already said the library is installed in a custom location.
