I have not solved that error.  I’m not  a perl programmer so I emailed the folks at msbl.org
and they haven't been able to get hold of the author of the perl module (Steve Freegard I
believe).  I think I have all required perl modules installed but names vary between distributions
so sometimes that a toss of the dice.  I don't know if it's just a Debian thing or is more
widespread...

Hi Kevin,
 
I am just trying this and getting the same error.  Did you work out how to fix this?
 
Cheers,

Subject: MSBL Email Blocklist (EBL) SA usage query

Has anyone tried out the the MSBL Email Blocklist (EBL) HashBL.pm with Spamassassin from msbl.org
and possibly considered packaging this module (available from this page: http://msbl.org/ebl-implementation.html)
with SpamAssassin (perhaps in a forthcoming release)?  rSpamD already has internal support
for the EBL. So I believe the MSBL folks are for this sort of thing in general.

This plugin looks through the message (not just headers) for email addresses which have been
identified as email drop boxes for scams like 419 advance fee fraud.  It then looks hashes
of these addresses up in a blocklist. 

I'm not affiliated with these folks.  I do however use this module in my setup though and
find it catches a bunch of things we wouldn't have otherwise caught.
