Installing Shorewall in Ubuntu

I started off with the simple command:
# apt-get install shorewall shorewall-doc
Thought everything was installed properly.  But I got the following error instead:
# shorewall start
   No shorewall compiler installed
Seems I'm missing one more package:
# apt-get install shorewall-perl
Once the shorewall-perl package is you should get the following output:
# shorewall start
   ERROR: No firewall zone defined
Now read up on configuring Shorewall! :)
