Just for further debugging:

process_begin: CreateProcess(NULL, C:/berrybrew/5.26.2_64_PDL/perl/site/bin/ -c "if not exist gcc_mswudll mkdir gcc_mswudll", ...) failed.

This suggests that the Module::Build / Alien::Build concoction wants to run what it thinks is a shell script through the shell, except that there is none defined:

C:/berrybrew/5.26.2_64_PDL/perl/site/bin/ -c

There is a shell missing after bin/. Of course, cmd.exe is a shell, but it doesn't take a -c command. The snippet passed to that "shell" is clearly cmd.exe syntax, so something goes wrong somewhere there. I don't know where that snippet comes from, so it's hard for me to say. Maybe that snippet is the WxWidgets-supplied Makefile so you have to look into makefile.gcc to see where/how it sets up a shell and how/why that shell thinks it can run commands with a *sh syntax when the commands are cmd.exe syntax.

Update: Most likely, GNU make examines $ENV{SHELL} and if that is set to some weirdo value (or set at all), it will use that instead of falling back on cmd.exe. My advice is to unset $ENV{SHELL} and try again.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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).
