installing modules with gccby dannoura (Pilgrim)

dannoura has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to install the Prima IPA module on my machine (WinXP running perl 5.8.0). The docs say to unpack, type makefile and make. I eventually realized that make is actually meant to be nmake. I used that (both from inside the MinGW interface and the command window) but got the error listed in this thread. So I downloaded MinGW and installed it, as per the advice in the thread, but got the same error when I typed nmake. Using the nmake file that came with MinGW gives the error:
Any ideas about how to install this module?
Update: I now get the error:Can't read makefile ': Makefile IPA.cls'
I think this means I'm missing a number of .h files. The docs say:
What's the INCPATH and LIBPATH, and why would adding to them find the missing files?
