That's a good question. One approach is to just install the
module directly. You can download the tar.gz file, unpack
it (tar -xzvf filename.tgz), then run perl Makefile.pl, and
finally make, make install.

ZOOM is required for Z39.50 support, so any process in
Koha that uses that will fail without that module installed.
I think the rest of them are just warnings, they probably
won't prevent you from installing.

Hope that helps,
