I ran into that once as well. After googling I have found that what folk'll do to get around that is write the command line out to a file, and then read it in.
ExtUtils::MakeMaker might be able to do that, but I know that in the perl source, in the win32 nmake makefile it's done pretty much by hand, since the makefile was written by hand (or so it appears).
Anyway, I just downloaded Font-TTF-0.32 and did "the make dance" without encountering the problem you describe.
I then looked a little closer, and noticed a "setup.bat", which used "pmake.bat", so I ran that, and still things went well.
I'm guessing you were using some older version.
I'm on Win2000 here.
