There's a new version of URI on CPAN.
This hopefully fixed bug number 2 of my project to solve 10 Catalyst related installation errors by the end of the Northern Hemisphere summer. Just 8 more to go between now and Sept 22, 2009!
I'll be working on Mac OSX related installation issues for the next item. I'd like for Perl Programming on the Mac to be much smoother than it is now. It really is an easy target since the Mac underneath can install a pretty generic unix toolchain and userland, just a few rough edges causing trouble.
UPDATE: Fixed broken link in post as reported. Thanks!
