To build a perl XS module with h2xs, I need the C::Scan module. Since
I could not find this module with zypper, but h2xs suggests to install
it via CPAN:

$ h2xs -O --skip-autoload -b 5.8.0 -x -n Module module.h
C::Scan required if you use -x option.
To install C::Scan, execute
perl -MCPAN -e "install C::Scan"

So I decided to follow this suggestion and did (as root):

# perl -MCPAN -e "install C::Scan"
[ many lines of output deleted ]
Installing /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.0/C/
Installing /usr/share/man/man3/C::Scan.3pm
Appending installation info to
/usr/bin/make install -- OK

Could it be that you're missing Data::Flow ?

But to spare you the work, I've created packages for both C::Scan and
Data::Flow. Just search for perl-C-Scan at and a one-click-install should install
both packages.
