When running makesimple on my makefile it errors out with the following: Can't locate object method "last_element" via package "MDOM::Token::Whitespace" at /Library/Perl/5.8.8/Makefile/Parser/ line 341 The makefile(s) are pretty big, and unfortunatley I can't share them because they are proprietary. I can say that it is a non-recursive makefile setup written for gnu Make 3.80 and the overall structure is something like this: project/ --> top level dir build/ makefile --> Top level makefile. Has default rules for compiling. Traverses into tree to build the source. Has default target. component1/ --> typical structure for a library module build/ --> has rules do define local module's src/obj and library src/ --> contains C source and header files tst/ --> contains test source lib/ --> contains the component library built by make files are pulled into make via an include: include $(addprefix ../,$(addsuffix /build/,$(modules))) Perl Version: perl -v This is perl, v5.8.8 built for darwin-thread-multi-2level (with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail) OS info: Mac OS X 10.5.5 Kernel Version: Darwin 9.5.0 Model Name: iMac Model Identifier: iMac7,1 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 4 MB Memory: 1 GB Bus Speed: 800 MHz Boot ROM Version: IM71.007A.B03

Someone in our team has also run into this some time ago. Thanks a lot for bringing this issue back to my attention. I'll look into this bug after I finish the firefox crawler cluster $project at hand ;) Thanks again! -agentzh

I had the same problem at installation time. # Failed test 'TEST 1: basics - script/makesimple generated the right error' # at t/makesimple.t line 61. # got: 'Can't locate object method "last_element" via package "MDOM::Token::Whitespace" at /Users/jean/.cpanplus/5.8.8/build/Makefile-Parser-0.211/blib/lib/Makefile/Parser/ line 341. # ' # expected: '' etc. However, MDOM was installed properly on my system (Mac OS X).
