It was a mistake...I thought the 10.5 disks were the 10.6 and because
I was processing 8 machines at the same time by the time I realized
the error I decided to install on top instead. In retrospect I should
not have done that and I might still re-install clean everything
again...thing is...I am really running out of time...the semester
started and we will need the machines up and running early next week

But as far as I recall it always turned out to be user error, often of the kind where the user did not uninstall and reinstall all ports after upgrading to Snow Leopard, and other times of the kind where the user switched what version of perl they were using. What versions of perl are installed?
