Perl Modules and Qmail install problems

I am using the "Setting Up LAMP book" , and I have run into an unanswered problem:

When installing PERL modules to use with Qmail I get the following error:

Running make test
Can't test without successful make
Running make install
make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

The book doesn't give an answer to why this may be happening.

I do have a make file in my /usr/bin directory, which is where cpan was looking for a make file. It is executable by all users.

I'm fairly confident (even as a newbie) that my make program works as I have installed other packages already.

This errors occurs with install DB_File, install HTML::Parser.

install Net:NS worked, however. It installed several dependencies, then said make installed ok at the end.

Can anyone help me resolve this or point me to a book or online resource that will help me? I'm completely stuck and can't find the answer on the web although I found close problems.

Thanks in advance.
