Everything in your posts confirms that perl Makefile.PL make=nmake is the reason, whether its because of cpan configuration or

You mention CPAN conf. I see the Strawberry Perl dmake called out explicitly.

Maybe I should update make_arg with make=dmake?

Also, the dir C:\strawberry\cpan\prefs is completely empty. Not sure if that is relevant.

EDIT: And here are all the "makes" in

C:\strawberry\perl\lib > find "make" ---------- CONFIG_HEAVY.PL firstmakefile='makefile' gmake='gmake' make='dmake' make_set_make='#' pmake=''

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
