Q: adding DCOP::Amarok perl module?

I am trying to add the DCOP::Amarok Perl module.

It doesn't seem to be in any Kubuntu repository, so I'm using the CPAN tool.

Here is what I am getting:

This is very consistent.  Does anyone know how to fix this?

FWIW, I _am_ running KDE (despite the "No active KDE sessions"
comment) and I have tried running this command with amarok running,
and without it running; it makes no difference to the output.

$DCOPSERVER is null. I'm not sure what it's supposed to be (or why it
seems not to have the right value).
