Hello, Olivier and the LogValidator team, thank you for making such a
useful tool.

I'm having a problem installing LogValidator and LinkChecker on my
system. I used:

perl -MCPAN -e'install W3C::LogValidator

to install the package on my system. This seemed to work okay; no
errors. It seemed to have installed all the LogValidator modules
automatically, including W3C::LogValidator::LinkChecker. After editing
the configuration file, I got this output:
-bash-3.00# logprocess.pl -f ./logprocess.conf
Reading logfiles: Done! 
Now Using the Basic module... 
Now using the HTML Validator module... processing 4497 URIs

 (This may take a long time if you have many files to validate)
trimmed list to 1216 URIs
Now Using the CSS Validation module...
Now Using the Link Checker module :
checklink not found at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/W3C/LogValidator/LinkChecker.pm line 93.

I searched my system for 'checklink' but didn't find it. I verified that
LinkChecker is installed:
-bash-3.00# perl -MCPAN -e 'install W3C::LogValidator::LinkChecker'
CPAN: Storable loaded ok
Going to read /root/.cpan/Metadata
  Database was generated on Wed, 30 Jan 2008 18:31:05 GMT
W3C::LogValidator::LinkChecker is up to date.

Can you help me in understanding this malfunction and how to remedy it?
Thanks for all your help and advice.
