Well, I've just installed it via CPAN to browse sources - I didn't try
to configure anything.

Is it supposed that siesta.conf is being created during installation?
If yes, then there is a problem - I cannot find it. Neither in
~/siesta where I told installer to install things, nor in Perl lib
tree where it installed libs.

Now after reading INSTALL I tried to setup database:

ilya@juil:~$ /home/ilya/perl-current/bin/nacho create-database
Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) at /home/ilya/perl-current/lib/site_perl/5.9.0/Class/DBI/ line 14.
Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /home/ilya/perl-current/lib/site_perl/5.9.0/Class/DBI/ line 14.
couldn't identify a backend from  at /home/ilya/perl-current/lib/site_perl/5.9.0/Class/DBI/ line 14.
Compilation failed in require at /home/ilya/perl-current/bin/nacho line 34.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /home/ilya/perl-current/bin/nacho line 40.

Could it be a problem that I run blead Perl(#20173) ?
