Perl needs to be linked with a number of libraries, typically including
-lm.  When Configure ran, it should have presented you with a default
list of libraries.  That default list was almost certainly ok, but the
wording of the question was probably confusing.  (It has been fixed in the
current development version.)

What you need to do is

	make distclean
	rm -f
and start over.  This time, accept the suggested defaults for the list of
libraries to use.

Hope this helps,
