Section Appendix C says:

   PBKDF2-PRFs ALGORITHM-IDENTIFIER ::= {
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA1},
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA224},
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA256},
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA384},
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA512},
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA512-224},
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA512-256},
     ...
   }

It should say:

   PBKDF2-PRFs ALGORITHM-IDENTIFIER ::= {
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA1}        |
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA224}      |
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA256}      |
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA384}      |
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA512}      |
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA512-224}  |
     {NULL IDENTIFIED BY id-hmacWithSHA512-256},
     ...
   }

Notes:

For the ASN.1 Module to compile properly, six commas need to be replaced with "|" in the definition of PBKDF2-PRFs.
