Hi,
Hopefully, this will be easy for someone else:

perl Makefile.PL LIB=xx PREFIX=xx
went off okay.

but..

Magick.xs was throwing up a lot of errors with "make" until I did this

added

MAGICK_HOME = /home/magnolia/ananth/tools/ImageMagick-6.2.4
and
-I$(MAGICK_HOME)/include to th INC list
in the Makefile

with that done, "make" finished reporting a lot of warnings from Magick.c
like:
....
Magick.c:7625: warning: unused variable `ix'
Magick.c: In function `XS_Image__Magick_QueryFont':
Magick.c:7700: warning: unused variable `ref'
Magick.c:7695: warning: unused variable `ix'
Magick.c: In function `XS_Image__Magick_QueryFontMetrics':
Magick.c:7815: warning: unused variable `ref'
Magick.c:7810: warning: unused variable `ix'
Magick.c: In function `XS_Image__Magick_QueryMultilineFontMetrics':
Magick.c:8173: warning: unused variable `ref'
...

then, when I do "make test" every test fails. I get errors like :

PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/local/bin/perl "-MExtUtils::Command::MM" "-e"
"test_harness(0, 'blib/lib', 'blib/arch')" t/*.t t/bzlib/*.t t/jng/*.t

Any help you could give me, I'd really appreciate.

Thanks,
Ananth
