Compile PERL from source on Windowsby MGoBlue (Novice)

MGoBlue has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I hope I followed all the rules (http://perlmonks.org/index.pl?node_id=237057, etc.)
I'm trying to compile PERL from source on a Windows box. I'm using XP SP3, Perl 5.16.2, and Visual C++ 2010.
nmake runs without more than a couple of nags for deprecated methods and such -- nothing fatal.
When it comes to nmake test, it keeps failing with this:
I did notice that there wasn't a perldelta.pod in the tar ball. There are however a ton of perl[version number]delta.pod files. e.g., perl5162delta.pod
I copied the perl5162delta.pod file and renamed it to perldelta.pod. Re-running nmake fails on test again.
What doesn't appear to be straight forward to me is why the 16, 2 isn't getting passed to this call and thus causing a fatal error.
I hope I've asked a decently worded question... just stuck here that's all. Any suggestions regarding compiling this from source would be greatly appreciated.
