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

When installing Inline::C either from cpan or from download, the following error comes up: Going to build I/IN/INGY/Inline-C-0.75.tar.gz syntax error at Makefile.PL line 13, near "install_share dist" BEGIN not safe after errors--compilation aborted at Makefile.PL line 8 +6. Warning: No success on command[/usr/local/bin/perl Makefile.PL PREFIX= +/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.12.4] INGY/Inline-C-0.75.tar.gz /usr/local/bin/perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.12.4 - +- NOT OK Running make test Make had some problems, won't test Running make install Make had some problems, won't install Failed during this command: INGY/Inline-C-0.75.tar.gz : writemakefile NO '/usr +/local/bin/perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.12.4' retur +ned status 65280

What can I do to fix this?
