Hi,

While building Perl in chapter 6, I get the following:

cd /home/lfs/perl-5.8.5 && \
make
make[3]: Entering directory `/home/lfs/perl-5.8.5'
makefile:917: *** missing separator.  Stop.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/lfs/perl-5.8.5'
make[2]: *** [build] Error 2

In makefile, I see:

<snip>
# AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED MAKE DEPENDENCIES--PUT NOTHING BELOW THIS LINE
# If this runs make out of memory, delete /usr/include lines.
0
av$(OBJ_EXT): /usr/include/_G_config.h
av$(OBJ_EXT): /usr/include/alloca.h
<snip>

Where the '0' is line 917.

Why did this happen?
Have I done something wrong?


Thanks,
Michael Kipper
