So I build and I test, trying to try out an sdl example and poop, can't load libsdl yada yada.

So I run with the --ask option (making sure all my libs are in a row), and I figure what the hey, I might as well install this time (nmake install), and what do I see? I see perl.exe yada yada yada  | sh error error.

Confused? Me too. You need perl to configure, a make program to make, but what do you need sh for?

I guess that's the price of progress, someone on the development team don't know much about perl (or don't got time to reinvent or whatever) and that's what you end up with.

I wonder when that happened :(

Hmm, install (looks like the right one) is nicely spaced plenty of comments, and still only 250 lines. Opportunity? I think so. Who knows sed/awk? :)

MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
