Here is my steps:
root:~# rm -rf coreutils-5.0
root:~# tar jxf coreutils-5.0.tar.bz2
root:~# cd coreutils-5.0
root:~/coreutils-5.0# patch -Np1 -i ../coreutils-5.0-uname.patch
patching file src/uname.c
root:~/coreutils-5.0# patch -Np1 -i ../coreutils-5.0-hostname-4.patch 
patching file man/
patching file man/
patching file src/
patching file src/
root:~/coreutils-5.0# ./configure --prefix=/usr
root:~/coreutils-5.0# make

.. and then the error comes. And I did install Perl as the book says.
If I use the patch from the book, it does work. But then the "make
check"'s fail. (See the my other post!)
