The magic line is right here. The glibc configure process tried to find 
perl on your PATH, couldn't, and instead of barfing it just stored "no" 
as the path to the perl binary.

Later, of course, when it tries to run perl, it can't, because there is 
no executable named "no", and even if there was it wouldn't be a perl 
interpreter anyway. Someday package maintainers will fix their configure 
scripts to deal with this properly.

Anyway, the root of your problem is that perl was not available when you 
ran the glibc configure script. Since we install perl during chapter 5, 
something went wrong during that chapter and you'll have to backtrack to 
see what you did.
