in thread Strawberry Perl 5.12.3, CPAN, make file problems (dmake.exe), DFSEP and backslash "\"

So modifying the cpan conf make_arg didn't help.

cpan> o conf make_arg make=dmake make_arg [make=dmake] commit: wrote 'C:\strawberry\perl\lib/CPAN/Config.pm'

That argument was already in there, so it added it twice in some spots.
