I installed 2007 yesterday to find I had problems compiling perl modules for
some of the stuff I run. I seem to get the same problems whether I install
via the CPAN interpreter or compile direct form downloaded source.

Here's an example:

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Writing Makefile for Digest::SHA
cp SHA.pm blib/lib/Digest/SHA.pm
/usr/bin/perl5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/ExtUtils/xsubpp -typemap /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/ExtUtils/typemap -typemap
typemap SHA.xs > SHA.xsc && mv SHA.xsc SHA.c
make: *** No rule to make target
`/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/i386-linux/CORE/EXTERN.h', needed by `SHA.o'. Stop.
/usr/bin/make -- NOT OK
Running make test
Can't test without successful make
Running make install
make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
Failed during this command:
MSHELOR/Digest-SHA-5.42.tar.gz : make NO

I'm guessing it's some issue with the C++ packages but am far from being an
expert and don't know what the exact problem is or how to solve it.

Here are the automake/autconf versions:

Any help appreciated
