perl -MCPAN -e shell install SDL::Tutorial ??


I am trying to install the CPAN modules SDL Tutorial but am receiving a strange error:

perl -MCPAN -e shell
install SDL::Tutorial

.... and then I receive:

Manifying blib/man3/SDL.3
Manifying blib/man3/SDL::OpenGL.3
Manifying blib/man3/SDL::Font.3
Manifying blib/man3/SDL::Timer.3
Manifying blib/man3/SDL::Music.3
Manifying blib/man3/SDL::Color.3
Manifying blib/man3/SDL::Tool::Font.3
Manifying blib/man3/SDL::Cdrom.3
Manifying blib/man3/SDL::Tutorial::Images.3
Manifying blib/man3/SDL::App.3
Manifying blib/man3/SDL::TTFont.3
/usr/bin/perl5.8.6 "-Iblib/arch" "-Iblib/lib" Build.PL Build
Too early to specify a build action 'Build'. Do 'Build Build' instead.
make: *** [Build] Error 9
/usr/bin/make -- NOT OK
Running make test
Can't test without successful make
Running make install
make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

What does "Do Build Build instead" mean ?

Why do I solve this ?

I dont rember whats the exact meaning of the Build Build,

But maybe its possible to compile this module by hand
For this go to your home directory, go into .cpan/buid/name of the module and compile it.

In a step-by-step-way:
cd .cpan
cd build
cd name_of_the_module_goes_here
perl Makefile.PL
make install
