Yes, you usually have to be superuser (root). 

This gives unlimited powers to any module you happen to install.
Not the only way to install Perl modules, but the simplest.

Tk is looking for some X headers in order to compile
some C code, possibly from this RPM. 

	xorg-x11-proto-devel  -- X.Org X11 Protocol headers 

As Julien points out, it might be easier to install
Tk directly through a Fedora RPM.

Oops! I forgot to include the Makefile.PL. I've uploaded
another version 0.9971. It might be a couple of hours till
it is indexed and available to install.

Please have another go.

Thanks for the report!
