Perl CPAN depends on make and libc6-dev packages

I tried running a Perl script I'd written and found that while Perl is installed, a couple of modules, namely HTML::Entities and Text::CSV, are not.

I ran CPAN (using sudo cpan and automatic config) but it failed to build any modules because make is not installed and nor are many C header files. The fix is to make sure the make and libc6-dev packages are installed.
