Running perl Makefile.pl using ActivePerl under win2000 seems to be consistently creating broken Makefiles (that's Makemaker v5.45 (Revision: 1.222) for anyone keeping score). Here's a snippet from a real-life that causes make to choke:
# --- MakeMaker pm_to_blib section:
@$(PERL) "-I$(INST_ARCHLIB)" "-I$(INST_LIB)" \
"-I$(PERL_ARCHLIB)" "-I$(PERL_LIB)" -MExtUtils::Install \
-e "pm_to_blib(qw[ <<pmfiles.dat ],'$(INST_LIB)\auto')"
Running make on this makefile produces the, Makefile:730: *** missing separator. Stop
Cutting the whole pm_to_blib: section doesn't help -- another error somewhere else pops up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
