Puzzling over bastille install

Used Synaptic to install Bastille, and left with a couple of puzzles.

1) No menu item installed. Supposed to happen that way? Not a big point as I 
suppose I could just use the menu editor to add an entry under System Tools or 

2) When I type bastille into a terminal window it grumps about not finding a 
Perl Tk module needed for the interface to run. If a graphic form is available 
I'd prefer to go that route. The error gives a URL where the file can presumably 
be found, but I have no idea which file I'm in need of or where to drop it in 
when and if I do find it. Suggestions, anyone?

I know the Bastille website does have a deb package to download and install. 
Would that have been a better idea then what's listed in Synaptic? Should I back 
the Synaptic install out, get the other one and put it in instead?
