make separator error

Trying to install Tk for Perl, using instructions in INSTALL file from Tk800.025
I ran perl Makefile.PL OK
Then ran make, and got this error message:
# make
Makefile:95: *** missing separator. Stop.

Makefile has these lines near 95:

93 installhtml1dir=''
94 installhtml3dir=''
95 installman1

What does this mean?

I also tried Tk800.024 and Tk804.025_beta7, all from CPAN, with the same result

Any help appreciated!

I have found a solution (on Tek-Tips Perl forum):
... from 3dan at Perl Monks:
"the offical workaround is to export LANG=C before running perl Makefile.PL"

I'm happy to say that this works fine!
