CPAN oddities ... wrong charset?

    Hello,

    When trying to install Gisle Aas's remarkably useful Digest::MD5 module I got an
    error :

    Makefile:85: *** missing separator. Stop.

    Indeed, Makefile is hosed ... e.g. :

    76 installvendorlib='/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.
    77 INSTALLVENDORLIB = ib/perl5'
    78 installusrbinperl='def
    79 INSTALLARCHLIB = /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi
    80 INSTALLSITEARCH =
    81 INSTALLVENDORARCH = /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8
    82 INSTALLBIN = /usr/bin'
    83 installhtml1dir=''
    84 installhtml3dir=''
    85 installman1
    86 INSTALLSITEBIN = /usr

    ?!!?!!!!???

    I was succesful in installing other packages -- but I have received this error
    (or one like it) on some other packages.

    I wonder if my terminal settings are to blame? Something needs to be changed
    with the CPAN configuaration?

    Any ideas?

    TIA
