nope, but it sounds like you're installing it from CPAN rather than
installing the packaged version.

try this instead:

	apt-get install liburi-perl

btw, most perl modules that you might want are already packaged for
debian. it's generally a good idea to check whether a module has already
been packaged before trying to install it from CPAN.

most perl module have package names like lib*-perl
