Missing Separator error

I'm trying to 'make test' to check a Perl module before installing on Win32
and I get
    "makefile:770: *** missing separator.  Stop."
I had a look around line 770 of the makefile and it looks like this:

765: pm_to_blib: $(TO_INST_PM)
766:     @$(PERL) "-I$(INST_ARCHLIB)" "-I$(INST_LIB)" \
767:     "-I$(PERL_ARCHLIB)" "-I$(PERL_LIB)" -MExtUtils::Install \
768:     -e "pm_to_blib(qw[ <<pmfiles.dat ],'$(INST_LIB)\auto')"
770: $(PM_TO_BLIB)     #<----this one here
771: <<
772:     @$(TOUCH) $@

I get this same message with every Perl module I try to 'make' and (although
not always the same line number) the $(PM_TO_BLIB) is always the problem.

Any help much appreciated...
