... Going to build C/CR/CRAZYDJ/Net-ARP-1.0.6.tgz

Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Writing Makefile for Net::ARP

  Can't test without successful make
Running make install
  Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
Failed during this command:
 CRAZYDJ/Net-ARP-1.0.6.tgz                    : make NO


"kit" is complete and looks good... but install seems impossible.

have you any idea what is happening ? 
thanks for yout help.

the perl version is v5.8.6 built for darwin-thread-multi-2level
and make is GNU Make 3.80 in /usr/bin/make.
