Perl Build Issue


I'm at chapter 5.26 in the LFS book and hitting on some troubles. Up until now, I've been building just fine, using Ununtu Edgy as the host system. I have deviated from the book in a few places, namely that I used the latest stable versions from upstream. That means that the following packages were installed at newer versions than the book:

-Binutils (2.17)
-GCC (4.2.1)
-Glibc (2.6.1)
-TCL (8.4.5)
-NCurses (5.6)
-Bash (3.2)
-Bzip2 (1.0.4)
-Coreutils (6.9)
-Findutils (4.2.31)
-Gettext (0.16)
-Grep (2.5.3)
-Gzip (1.3.12)
-M4 (1.4.10)
-Make (3.81)

When I attempt to compile perl, I cd into the source tree, apply the patch recommended, and execute the configure script exactly as recommended. However, when I attempt to make with any target it refuses to even begin with this message:

make: *** No rule to make target '<command-line>', needed by 'perlmain.o'. Stop.

I cracked open the Makefile and have no idea where this comes from. Any suggestions?

----
I should add that I get the exact same behavior if I used the tarball from perl.com or the one from LFS. Also, running make as another user to invoke the host make rather than the LFS make has no effect.

Sorry, there was a problem in my PATH. I'm not sure what it was, but if I set the path of the lfs user to be the path of a local user, with /tools prepended, it worked.

Lightbulb Resolution

I found a resolution here:
http://www.diy-linux.org/pipermail/d...er/000933.html

just run the following and the code will compile successfully:
sed -i.bak '/<command-line>$/d' makefile
