BTW -- you don't have to have everything in the config file.  The values in
the swishcgi.conf file will be merged with the default settings.  i.e you
don't need things like

        description_prop    => 'swishdescription',
        title_property  => 'swishdocpath',

if they are the default values.

Humm.  I think I've seen this with Template Toolkit.

No you are telling it to use Template Toolkit.  So that needs to be installed.

You can get it from these places if you install modules manually (which is
what I do - perl Makefile.PL && make && make test && make install)

or if you use the CPAN module something like:

   # perl -MCPAN -e 'install Template'
