Makemaker kicking my butt

stevechard has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am trying to install Compress-Zlib on a Win2K box. So far only disaster. The 'perl' step produces a makefile that nukes nmake (only make-er avail on my Win2K box). Trying 'perl makefile.nt' produces a makefile doesn't choke choke basic 'nmake' step. But moving on to the 'nmake test' makes smoke and lord help me if I venture into 'nmake install'. I have modified my local CONFIG.PM to utilze MS tools (compiler, linker and lib,) and I am blind from tinkering with and in hopes of a functional makefile... but NO success. Even the skipping the install and poking in the 'pre-built' DLL generates a fatal "MISSING '_boot_Compress_Zlib_'" error when I run a script looking for ZLIB. Anyone got a hand grenade?
