I've been trying to configure perl, but it doesn't do it correctly. It can 
configure fine under Redhat, but not under LFS.

This is not the first version it does it on and I can't get past it this 

After "./configure.gnu --prefix && make && make install" I get this:

        makefile:856: *** missing separator.  Stop.

Ok, delete the "0" on that line - why it's there, I don't know! - and then I 

        rm -rf ../../lib/auto/DynaLoader/DynaLoader.a
        /usr/bin/ar cr ../../lib/auto/DynaLoader/DynaLoader.a DynaLoader.o && :
        chmod 755 ../../lib/auto/DynaLoader/DynaLoader.a
        make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/perl-5.8.0/ext/DynaLoader'
        cc -o perl  -L/usr/local/lib -rdynamic perlmain.o       
        lib/auto/DynaLoader/DynaLoader.a  libperl.a `cat ext.libs` -lnsl -ldl -lm 
        -lc -lcrypt -lutil
        cd x2p;  make s2p
        make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/perl-5.8.0/x2p'
        makefile:156: *** target pattern contains no `%'.  Stop.
        make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/perl-5.8.0/x2p'
        make: *** [x2p/s2p] Error 2

Did I do something royally wrong in some other part of the installation 
process? I'm asking here, because I'm not getting anywhere on the support 

Thanks in advance,
