Follow Benjamin's suggestion of commenting out the "DIRS += cap5" line in the 
src/Makefile

Perl is essential for building EPICS software, but it doesn't need the other 
executables such as podchecker or pod2html that are used in src/cap5.  If you 
don't have any other issues with the build then your Perl installation is 
probably working sufficiently, although eventually you might want to try re-
installing it.
