You won't find MapSearch.pm in CPAN, it's a module included in
MythWeather itself.  The problem you're having is that the current
directory (i.e. '.') is not in your include path (@INC array).

You are probably running mythfrontend as suid root.  Doing so forces
PERL to operate in taint-check mode which removes '.' from the @INC
path.  See:
