Beginner: Installing Perl Program

    I installed Perl (ActivePerl 5.8.6 Build 811) for Windows 2000 to
    directory C:\Perl. I think Perl was installed succesfully, because I
    can execute the test program:

    C:\Perl\eg>perl example.pl
    Hello from ActivePerl!

    But when I try to install MIME-tools 6.110 (needs Perl), I get the
    following:

    C:\mimetools\MIME-tools-6.200_02>perl Makefile.PL
    Checking if your kit is complete...
    Looks good
    Warning: prerequisite IO::Stringy 1.211 not found.
    Warning: prerequisite Mail::Field 1.05 not found.
    Warning: prerequisite Mail::Header 1.01 not found.
    Warning: prerequisite Mail::Internet 1.0203 not found.
    Warning: prerequisite Unicode::Map 0.112 not found.
    Writing Makefile for MIME-tools

    C:\mimetools\MIME-tools-6.200_02>make test
    make.exe: *** No rule to make target `C:\Perl\lib^', needed by
    `Makefile'. Stop.

    C:\MIMETO~1\MIME-T~1.200>make install
    make.exe: *** No rule to make target `C:\Perl\lib^', needed by
    `Makefile'. Stop.

    Here's the Makefile.PL:

    --->---------------------------------------->---
    #!/usr/bin/perl
    use ExtUtils::MakeMaker;
    WriteMakefile(
    NAME => "MIME-tools",
    VERSION => "6.200_02",
    # VERSION_FROM => "lib/MIME/Tools.pm",
    PREREQ_PM => {"Mail::Header" => 1.01,
    "Mail::Internet" => 1.0203,
    "Mail::Field" => 1.05,

    "MIME::QuotedPrint" => 2.03,
    "MIME::Base64" => 2.04,
    "IO::Stringy" => 1.211,
    "File::Spec" => 0.6,
    "File::path" => 1,
    "Unicode::String" => 2.06,
    "Unicode::Map" => 0.112,
    },
    'dist' => {
    # PREOP =>"cvu_perl_preop -B -f -m MIME::Tools",
    PREOP => "pod2text lib/MIME/Tools.pm >! README",
    COMPRESS =>'gzip',
    SUFFIX =>'gz',
    },
    );

    If you are using ActiveState Perl, you should use ppm to search for and
    install packages. That way, you don't have to have a compiler compatible
    with the one that was used to compile ActiveState's distribution.

    Please look in the "ActiveState Perl" program group, accessible through
    the Start -> Programs menu. There are links to documentation, and the
    ppm shell in there.

    ppm will automatically download and install any prerequisites as well.
