THis seems like some problem between the ActiveState version of perl
(which adds the CPerlObj stuff - it does not exist in the "normal"
version of perl).
Do you happen to have an older version of perl lying around?
Have you tried downloading the binary version of sybperl from
Maybe you also need to ask someone at activestate (maybe on some of
their mailing lists) as I've never used this at all...
