Newbie: Installing HTML::Table module

I have downloaded the module HTML-Table-1.03.tar.gz from CPAN.  
Having extracted it under Windows, I copied the contained files 
to a DOS floppy, from there to /dos on my FreeBSD PC 
(not yet Internet-ready) and then ran:
perl Makefile.PL
Make test
Make install

But got error messages: 
Cannot  create blib/man3/HTML::Table.3 error22
Cannot install blib/man3/HTML::Table.3

Is this because I need to be installing from a different directory
Or because I extract the tarball under Windows?

If I were to install from the tarball under FreeBSD what would I do?

Thanks for any help.

PS Perl is working fine otherwise
