CPAN Term::ReadKey won’t compile? Get it via apt-get

For some reason in Perl CPAN, I always have issues around getting Term::ReadKey to install/compile on a fresh Linux distro install.

cpan Term:ReadKey compile issue
cpan Term:ReadKey compile issue

There might be a way to correct this. I haven’t found it, but another way to get the package is just via apt-get in your Debian-based linux distro.

libterm-readkey-perl package via apt
libterm-readkey-perl package via apt

The readkey package name on your linux distro of choice may vary.
