I am trying to add LWP::Curl to my library of installed CPAN modules. When I initiate the process to fetch it and process it into my library, I see a message that says:
Package libcurl was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libcurl.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
after which the process fails. I've downloaded curl both for Windows and for Cygwin directly from the source, https://curl.haxx.se/download.html, but have not seen the libcurl.pc file in either of them.
After doing much web searching, I've found that others have been encountering this since around 2008. However, I haven't found any posts that provide a solution.
