Unhappy Makefile separator problem


I am trying to install the latest version of Tk for perl, but for some reason it isn't working. I get the error:
Makefile:95: *** missing separator. Stop.
Here are lines 94, 95, and 96 of my Makefile:

installhtml3dir='' <-- that's two single quotes
installman1
INSTALLSITEBIN = /usr

Can someone please help me fix the problem, whatever it may be?

Thanks alot!

This is a known problem with the perl version that ships with Redhat 9 and some special UTF-8 iso character set that screws up some string processing. The Makefile gets generated by the Makefile.PL script, and there it happens.

By default you have $LANG set to

# echo $LANG
en_US.iso885915
#

Do

LANG=C
Makefile.PL

and it should work. The redhat folks know about it...

http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/...g.cgi?id=87682

Hope it helps,
mlp

Ok thanks! I get it make the Makefile perfectly, but now i get another problem:

gcc -c -I.. -I/usr/X11R6/include -I. -Ibitmaps -I/usr/X11R6/include -D_REENTRANT -D_GNU_SOURCE -DTHREADS_HAVE_PIDS -DDEBUGGING -fno-strict-aliasing -I/usr/local/include -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -I/usr/include/gdbm -O2 -march=i386 -mcpu=i686 -g -DVERSION=\"800.024\" -DXS_VERSION=\"800.024\" -fPIC "-I/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE" -Wall -Wno-implicit-int -Wno-comment -Wno-unused -D__USE_FIXED_PROTOTYPES__ ClientWin.c
/bin/sh: line 1: gcc: command not found
make[1]: *** [ClientWin.o] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/justin/Tk800.024/pTk'
make: *** [pTk/libpTk.a] Error 2

Please help me by this one last obstacle! I assume it has something to do with me needing gcc, but I just moved to linux 2 days ago and I have no idea what that is.

Thanks in advance,

OK I realized that I should rely on myself sometimes, and I fixed that problem myself. I made the Makefile, and it seemed to go just fine. Next i did make test, and here is what happened:

Failed Test Stat Wstat Total Fail Failed List of Failed
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
t/create.t 1 256 419 319 76.13% 101-419
t/zzScrolled.t 94 2 2.13% 66 94
Failed 2/25 test scripts, 92.00% okay. 321/904 subtests failed, 64.49% okay.
make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 29

Should I go ahead and do make install or what? I have no idea what went wrong. Please help me!

as you can easily see the fact is that you don't have gcc installed, so install the rpm or the package that contains gcc.
What I don't understand is how you managed to install linux _without_ gcc.

gcc = GNU C compiler .
