 'making' perl

hi,
i am trying to install a new version of perl on a linux box. problem is:
i can run the Configure script without any trouble, make dep is running
well too, but when i try to run make i get an error saying : error in
makefile pointing to the last line of it.

has anybody an idea how to solve this problem?

Impossible to say for certain without a copy of the error. However, you
might look at the makefile to see what it is griping about. You might also
run 'sh Configure -des' and see if that fixes it. Read the INSTALL
document in the source as well.

Also, check your shell env and, if this is redhat, check the growing
errata page for things such as 'make is hosed' or something.

enjoy.

bunch of hands-on Perl tutorials at
