Problem installing webace

I am trying to install Acedb for peoples in my lab. Ideally, I would
like acedb to be accessible through web pages, which is what webace is
supposed to do.
However, I have encountered some dificulties. Before explaining any
further the problem (or problems) I should say that I am new to Unix
systems (I have been running a Linux machine for only a few months), so
part of the problem may just be trivial.
First, what is working correctly:
Acedb works on my machine, when launching acedb from the command line.
Aceserver and aceclient appear to work fine also: aceserver as
inetd, aceclient with proper command line:
aceclient my.ip.address -port 20000114
then I get a secondary prompt, and I can make queries etc...
Apache is OK (I can access other web pages, as well as CGI scripts)
Then, a few things that have been done:
CGI.pm have been installed
GD.pm have been installed
Webace cgi-bin scripts have been copied to the proper directory
(/home/httpd/cg-bin), and chmoded properly
/acelib have been moved to a directory in perl's search path
Edition of acelib/hostinfo.pl and acelib/dbinfo
$main::baseURL = 'http://mymachine.marseille.inserm.fr';
$main::acelib = '/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/acelib';
$main::acebin = '/usr/local/bin/';
# database server rpc port data directory url
Acedb mymachine.marseille.inserm.fr 20000114 /home/Database/ACEDB
Now, when I try http://mymachine.marseille.inserm.fr/Acedb.html, I get
nothing (maybe because I should create an Acedb.html file?)
When I try http://mymachine.marseille.inserm.fr/cgi-bin/webace I get an
internal server error.
The /var/log/httpd/error_log says:
Can't locate Aceclient.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
.) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.005/acelib/Acedb.pm line 5.

[Tue Oct 26 10:57:13 1999] [error] [client my.ip.adresss] Premature end
of script headers: /home/httpd/cgi-bin/webace
When looking at Acedb.pm and webace:
Acedb.pm, line 5 = use Aceclient;
webace line 13 = use acelib::Acedb;
I did not recompile Aceclient into Perl, because I thought I got a
precompiles binary. Can that be the problem?
When I tried to compile Aceclient into Perl, I ran into some
difficulties with setting up $ACEDB_MACHINE and $ACEDB_SRC.
I just don't know how to set $ACEDB_MACHINE and $ACEDB_SRC on my
and then, any tips on how to make aceclient?
Thanks for your help!
