script_kid has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Greetings oh holy ones!

I am trying to add the Tk module to Perl 5.16.0 running on an AIX 6 machine. The Tk I'm wresting with is Tk-804.031.

My attempt dies with the error "Cannot find rule to create target libpng.a from dependencies". The Makefile from the ...PNG/libpng directory follows below. I would appreciate any pointers to complete the install. The .c files in OBJS are all present in the directory, but there is no sign of the compiled objects.

Thanks for any perls of wisdom

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
