in thread SDL_Perl for Win32?

I don't know. I know that Windows isn't the greatest environment to build stuff, but thats the platform that I have to use here.

My problem with Module::Build is that when something wrong happens, I haven't a clue what I need to do to fix it. Its so frustrating! At least with MakeMaker I can look at the makefile and try to config stuff manually, by hand. I can see the dependencies. I can see which information it needs to build. I can see that it requires header files to install. A build system that requires me to be intimately familiar with its internals is useless to me.

I mean, dammit! I don't care how the thing builds, I just want to use it! I'm even very willing to spend lots of time trying to get it to install, because I need it. Its just when the build system says essentially says "sorry, the automatic configure system isn't working", and thats all the output I get, I... its just... AARRRRRGHHH!
