Actually, all the requisite modules, save two, are available through
Ubuntu.  The two that are not yet in Ubuntu are packaged in the pre-req

For some versions of Ubuntu, such as 6.06, not all modules are of an
appropriate version; the single module in that condition that I 
encountered in testing can be safely imported from 6.10 or 7.04.
