Where do you actually extract a tarball? Strawberryby jjap (Monk)

jjap has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Sorry if this is very basic, but cpan did the hard work for me until now...
Okayyyyy, I notice C:\strawberry\cpan\sources\authors\id\M\MA\MACGYVER is where the tarball is.
Previously failed builds appear to be in C:\strawberry\cpan\build\Whereas properly installed contributed modules, such as XLSX::Writer are in:C:\strawberry\perl\site\lib\Spreadsheet\XLSX
Unlike standard ones which are in C:\strawberry\perl\libMy question: do I just unpack/extrat "anywhere" on the drive and run the Makefile.PL etc.. command?
Very sorry if this is extremely basic.
Thanks and best regards.UPDATE: Thanks to VinsWorldcom for pointing out dmake and not make has to be used (Windows).
Point noted Khen1950fx about the memory issue, it did not have an impact in my case. I manually extracted with 7zip and the build process went like a breeze!
