On one machine but not another - although the module comes with the
plugin.
I would expect most plugins to be bundled with the modules they require
(he says, having just written one that isn't)

Did you just mean that with perl installed you get a lot of extra
modules to play with?

Hmm... but you do have perl installed on your system?

I never included them... Where would you put them? I did not know perl
compilations could load modules that are not compiled in...

Yes. I expect a lot more modules available with a standard perl
installation than are needed by slimserver.
