Dear all,

I am trying to install demeter on my debian 7 computer and I cannot 
reach the end of the compilation.

I followed the instructions from the https://gist.github.com/3959252 page.

First, the "perl ./Build.PL" still requires "PDL::stats" even after 
several  "./Build installdeps". I have the following message:
letard at pcikieffer:~/demeter$ perl ./Build.PL
Checking prerequisites...
     !  PDL::Stats is not installed

of the modules indicated above before proceeding with this installation

Run 'Build installdeps' to install missing prerequisites.

Created MYMETA.yml and MYMETA.json
Creating new 'Build' script for 'Demeter' version 'v0.9.21'

If all dependencies are met, build and install Demeter by doing:

   ./Build test
   ./Build install # (or sudo ./Build install)

If you are reinstalling Demeter after updating your operating
system (or updating perl), you may find that none of the programs
will run successfully.  You may need to do:

   ./Build touch_wrapper
   ./Build test
   ./Build install # (or sudo ./Build install)

Then, I decided to continue despite this missing prerequisite and the 
"./Build" ends with the folowing error:
Building Artemis User's Guide
Building Athena User's Guide
   ! plugin error - Can't locate Clone.pm in @INC (@INC contains:

So I don't know if something is missing on my computer or if one of you 
encountered similar problems. If one of you has some ideas to help me 
going further, I would really appreciate!

Thanks a lot in advance.
