And that nailed it! Thanks Anonymous.

Doing this:
cpan> o conf makepl_arg make=dmake makepl_arg [make=dmake] commit: wrote 'C:\strawberry\perl\lib/CPAN/'
Allowed me to actually install my first CPAN module in Strawberry Perl on Windows:
C:\strawberry > cpan OLE::Storage_Lite CPAN: CPAN::SQLite loaded ok (v0.199) Database was generated on Thu, 16 Feb 2012 19:36:49 GMT Running install for module 'OLE::Storage_Lite' Running make for J/JM/JMCNAMARA/OLE-Storage_Lite-0.19.tar.gz CPAN: Digest::SHA loaded ok (v5.61) CPAN: Compress::Zlib loaded ok (v2.034) Checksum for C:\strawberry\cpan\sources\authors\id\J\JM\JMCNAMARA\OLE- +Storage_Lite-0.19.tar.gz ok CPAN: Archive::Tar loaded ok (v1.76) CPAN: File::Temp loaded ok (v0.22) CPAN: Parse::CPAN::Meta loaded ok (v1.4401) CPAN: CPAN::Meta loaded ok (v2.110930) CPAN: Module::CoreList loaded ok (v2.46) Going to build J/JM/JMCNAMARA/OLE-Storage_Lite-0.19.tar.gz Checking if your kit is complete...

Of course, I undid my modification of the wrong cpan conf option first:
cpan> o conf make_arg "" make_arg [] commit: wrote 'C:\strawberry\perl\lib/CPAN/'

I have no idea what was so special about my Windows installation that this option was not set from the beginning in Strawberry Perl, but I consider this solved for my part.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
