[Bins] new (l)user, bugs

just recently found and installed bins (1.1.23), which was an exercise
installing on sparc-sun-solaris2.8, firstly with perl 5.6.1 and then
the initial installs in both perls was full of errors when "test"-ing
several of the packages bins requires (e.g., , so i force installed
them. then bins refused to run with an "unsupported conversion" error.
i changed optimizeConversion to 1 instead of zero, which worked
around that problem.
but then i got the same error reported recently about Html::Template,
and the "quoting" workaround in Template.pm fixed that problem.
and then i got another conversion problem when using bins_edit, which is
worked around by commenting out the converter assignment (which
doesn't seem to be used anyway).
i suspect the Iconv bugs are solaris-specific, since i know it has
deficient capabilities in this area.
anyway, now that i have bins and bins_edit working, it's great!
unfortunately it will take far too long to install the supporting
software to get bins-edit-gui going so i cannot comment on that.
