Description John Simpson 2003-04-09 00:36:51 EDT
Description of problem:
Trying to compile certain CPAN modules (so far CDB_File and updated CPAN) from
source generates an invalid Makefile, containing random four-line chunks of
Config.pm instead of single values.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
try to build CPAN CDB_File module

Steps to Reproduce:
1. wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/M/MS/MSERGEANT/CDB_File-0.93.tar.gz
2. tar xvzf CDB_File-0.93.tar.gz
3. cd CDB_File-0.93
4. perl Makefile.PL
5. make
Actual results:
Makefile:82: *** missing separator.  Stop.

Expected results:
module builds correctly

Additional info:
same thing happened under the 8.1 beta, but module builds correctly under 7.3
and 8.0.

Found bug #84268, tried with LANG=C and with LANG totally unset. In both cases
it builds a valid makefile, and "make" works, but "make test" comes back with
errors. I am working with the module's author for a fix.
