I received the same error with both make and gmake.

I am attempting to compile Perl 5.8.8 on FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE.  I make

make: don't know how to make <command-line>. Stop.

I have run make depend, and it finishes without any problems.

I'm sure this is something simple I am missing because I have been
looking at the problem for so long.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Even for non-standard location installs, I recommend using the ports
instead of building yourself, but if you really want to do it by hand,
expect to need to know a bit more about what you're doing.  In this
case, I suspect you need to use gmake instead of (the native) make.
