I checked that, but I have only one perl installed and I confirmed that 
checksetup.pl is using the same perl.

[root at localhost bugzilla]# which perl
[root at localhost bugzilla]# ls -al /usr/bonsaitools/bin/
total 8
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root         4096 Feb 26 15:42 .
drwxr-xr-x    3 root     root         4096 Feb 26 15:40 ..
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           13 Feb 26 15:42 perl -> 

First line of checksetup.pl
#!/usr/bonsaitools/bin/perl -w

I tried these commands, but no luck.

Can you please tell me how checksetup.pl find the whether the component is 
installed or not? What file should I check to confirm that DBD component is
