 From reading the output it seems like perhaps you don't have 'make' or 
there is something wrong when using it. If you're on a mac you may need 
to install the dev tools. Someone else want to jump in here with advice?

Also, check your CPAN configuration to ensure it is trying to use the 
correct make commands. ('o conf' etc.)

Don't do that. At least not until you know you have a working make setup.
