[Perldl] 2.4.10/Debian installation

I upgraded my PDL installation to version 2.4.10 this morning under
Debian/testing using perlbrew and cpanm. I got an error message
stating that installation failed. Thus I installed manually using
make, make test and make install, which failed apparently when
building the html documentation. I include the last messages
below. Nevertheless, it seems the installation mostly succeeded (I
have just ran some of the demos under pdl2). Should I worry?
Best regards,
