Infact, though I did have the db software installed I did NOT have any
databases cataloged or aliased. Would that be the issue?

because Im in design/test phase.
my make install went without error.

Do you already have the client software for your database installed?
That is normally a prerequisite.

Do you mean the runtime application or the DBD? The runtime was installed.
As far as I remember when I was installing it said the DBI needed to be
installed first and when the make test failed and I tried to install the DBD
just for kicks it needed the DBI first.

Did I answer your question?

it downloads the new module, builds everything, and then starts running
the make test portion of the install. During this process, I get
following output (after a bunch of other successful tests): <snip>
/usr/bin/make test -- NOT OK
Running make install
make test had returned bad status, won't install without force

I already have an older version of DBI installed (need to upgrade
to install Bugzilla), and I don't otherwise think there's anything magical
about my existing Perl install or my server setup.
I really have no idea how to proceed from this point. Any ideas?
Since most of the tests passed, if you're confident enough in the new
you can
/usr/bin/perl -MCPAN -e 'force install "DBI"'
