That sounds like it comes from one of these Makefile rules:

$(XSUBPP_EXTRA_ARGS) $*.xs > $*.xsc && $(MV) $*.xsc $*.c

# --- MakeMaker xs_o section:

$*.xs > $*.xsc && $(MV) $*.xsc $*.c
      $(NOECHO) $(ECHO) [ CC $< ] && $(CCCMD) $(CCCDLFLAGS) "-I$(PERL_INC)"

So... do you have 'echo' installed?  What's the ECHO Makefile variable
set to for you?  (Search for 'ECHO = ' in the generated Makefile.)  If
you have 'echo' installed, what version is it?

gtk-perl-list gnome org

I had the same error and google sent me here.
I added the ECHO variable in the makefile and voila !
ECHO = echo
