cannot load strict.pm when executing Perl

Hey All,
I'm trying to get ddclient running on the BeagleBoard and having a problem with a Perl module. I installed Perl via opkg and all of the modules, but I am still getting "Can't locate strict.pm in @INC" error message. Is there an alternate location of getting this module. I'm pretty much a Perl dummy and I did a some searching without much success.

Also is there and alternate DNS client that is compatible with dyndns that will run under Angstrom?

Thanks
Mark
