5.8.8 build fails - no Makefile

    This is on a PC running Knoppix 3.7.

    I ran "Configure" interactively and did not see any error messages.
    According to the directions in the "INSTALL" file, the next step is
    "make". I'm in the "UU" directory, which has no Makefile. The closest
    thing to it is "Makefile.SH" in the "perl-5.8.8" directory, which fails
    because it can't find "config.sh", which is in the "UU" directory.

    ?

    [end of Configure run]

    Checking what constant to use for creating joinable pthreads...
    You seem to use PTHREAD_CREATE_JOINABLE.

    pause() found.

    pipe() found.

    poll() found.

    readlink() found.

    root@ttyp1[UU]#

    What UU directory? I don't think a normal distribution has one,
    but if it does, what are you doing there?

    The normal sequence is

    cd perl-5.8.8
    ./Configure -des
    make
    make test
    make install
