Installing Spamassassin (make error message) - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I downloaded, uncompressed and did: (as explained in http://au.spamassassin.org/full/2.6x/dist/INSTALL) perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=~/sausr SYSCONFDIR=~/saetc make make install But "make" gave me: Makefile:93: *** missing separator. Stop. I cannot see what can be wrong. Help would be appreciated. Gaetan...

    Default Installing Spamassassin (make error message)

    I downloaded, uncompressed and did: (as explained in

    perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=~/sausr SYSCONFDIR=~/saetc
    make
    make install

    But "make" gave me:

    I cannot see what can be wrong. Help would be appreciated.

    IIRC, that's a sign of the Perl/UTF-8 problem... You might go to the
    SA web site and look thru the FAQs for it. The short answer is
    'remove UTF-8 from your LANG variable, perl and UTF-8 don't play well
    together'. Please note that this is NOT a spamassassin problem, it's
    a perl problem.

    Try using absolute pathnames or $HOMEDIR/sausr rather than "~/sausr". Perl
    has meanings for the "~" symbol that are rather different from the shell's
    "your real HOMEDIR".
