Right before you configured the package i bet you typed
echo 'static_ext="10 re Fcntl"' >> hints/linux.sh
instead of
echo 'static_ext="IO re Fcntl"' >> hints/linux.sh

You should've typed the second line. Notice that in the first one there 
is a one and a zero whereas in the second line there is a capital I and 
a capital O. It is a common mistake for people reading the PDF version 
of the book as it evidently isn't very clear in the PDF copy.

You should remove the perl directory, re-extract the tarball and redo 
the instructions but make sure you type the line in correctly.

Hope this helps!
