Linux From Scratch book v. 6.1.1, chapter 5.32.1, p. 72
I am booting from and using the sources from the LFS live CD
perl and pod2man seem to be missing.
I installed perl as follows
1) I have applied the patch: patch -Np1 -i
2) Prepared perl for compilation: ./configure.gnu
--prefix=/tools -Dstatic_ext='IO Fcntl POSIX'
3) Built some utilities: make perl utilities
4) Because it was not recommended, I did not run: make test
5) The problem occurs when trying to copy perl and pod2man to
/tools/bin: cp -v perl pod/pod2man /tools/bin
When running the cp command, I get the following:
cp: cannot stat 'perl' : No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat 'pod2man' : No such file or directory
I am in the Perl-5.8.7 directory. In this directory, there are several
files named perl with various extensions (perl.c, perl.h, perl.o), but
I cannot find a file named perl that hasn't an extension. Similarly,
there is a subdirectory named pod, but within this directory I can only
find pod2man.PL (no pod2man without extension).
Obviously I am missing something. I am new to Linux (an intense 5
weeks) but I have been able to resolve the few problems I have
encountered with LFS by means of the faq and hint pages. This one,
however, has got my stumped. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance,
