Perl is making Errors in Makefileby guice (Scribe)

guice has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm at a loss here .. Here's what's happening. It's happened with more than one module source comple:
I run perl Makefile.pl like always and it runs through like nothing's wrong and creates a Makefile.
I run make and I get: Makefile:##:*** missing seperator. Stop.
I take a look at the Make file and I see this:
Take a close look, half that data is invalid. Chopped off, incomplete lines, missing quotes, newlines where they aren't suppose to be. It's an utter mess. I've attempted to fix some (in the past), but it's so much of a mess and my knowledge of Makefile isn't advanced enough to clean this up.
I've searched everywhere I can think of for why Perl is doing this, but had no luck.
Any wise ones within the Monk Community can tell me why? or at least point me to a source for this?
Secs (I have a feeling they play a part)
