install_driver(mysql) failed: Can't locate DBD/ in @INC

P: n/a
I am attempting to build a Bugzilla server on OS X.

All of this is new to me, working with the Perl, MySQL, and Bugzilla,
so I have been
banging my head often.
Software error:

When I run the bugzilla '' file, I get the following:

Checking perl modules ...
Checking for AppConfig (v1.52) ok: found v1.52
Checking for CGI (v2.93) ok: found v2.98

Populating duplicates table...


All appears to be ok.

When I connect to the server I get the Bugzilla page, with no problem.
However, when I click on a link
(such as "Search existing bug reports", I get the following:


install_driver(mysql) failed: Can't locate DBD/ in @INC (@INC
contains: . /System/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level
/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level /Library/Perl/5.8.1
/Library/Perl /Network/Library/Perl/5.8.1/darwin-thread-multi-2level
/Network/Library/Perl/5.8.1 /Network/Library/Perl) at (eval 10) line
Perhaps the DBD::mysql perl module hasn't been fully installed,
or perhaps the capitalisation of 'mysql' isn't right.
Available drivers: DBM, ExampleP, File, Proxy, Sponge.
at Bugzilla/ line 146
The statement "...Can't locate DBD/" stands out. I
searched for the "" file and cannot locate it on the system.

I would appreciate any help that can be provided.
