Installing perl...


I'm trying to install perl on cygwin from source (5.6.1-2) and I get an
error on make:
  make: *** No rule to make target '<built-in>', needed by
'miniperlmain.o'. Stop.

Okay, I'm working on XP. Here's the configuration that I'm attempting:


# This script is designed to provide a handy summary of the
# information being used to build perl. This is especially useful if you
# are requesting help from comp.lang.perl.misc on usenet or via mail.

# Note that the text lines /^Summary of/ .. /^\s*$/ are copied into
cat <<'!NO!SUBS!'

Any ideas on why I can't get this to work? What more information do you
need to be able to help me?

This is exhausting...

Thanks for any help,
