Hello everybody,

Sorry, me english is very bad, so i try to keep it simple.
 
I have a little problem with installing perl utilities.

'make perl utilities' stops with the following error:
<------
         Making IO (static)
Can't cd to /sources/perl-5.8.8/ext/IO: No such file or directory
Warning: No Makefile!
make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/perl-5.8.8/ext/IO'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `config'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/perl-5.8.8/ext/IO'
make config failed, continuing anyway...
make[1]: Entering directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/perl-5.8.8/ext/IO'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `all'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/perl-5.8.8/ext/IO'
make: *** [lib/auto/IO/IO.a] Error 2
------>

configure did not stop, but prints out a warning (somewhere in the middle):
<------
WARNING: Extensions DB_File or *DBM_File, Fcntl, and IO not configured.
WARNING: The Perl you are building will be quite crippled.
------>

Host is:
Knoppix 5.0.1
Kernel 2.6.17
gcc 4.0.4

Does anybody know, what i did wrong?
Why does make try to switch to /sources/perl-5.8.8/ext/IO?
Should it not be /mnt/lfs/sources/... ?

Thanks in advance
