Whatever distribution this is is broken if you're installing the
application from a .tar.gz file.
Module::Install::Catalyst (which provides the 'catalyst;' function)
should be already bundled in the inc/ directory, and everything
Alternatively - if you're checking the application out of revision
control (i.e. there is no inc/ directory in the distribution) then
you need Catalyst::Devel installed as you are running in 'author'
