in thread strawberry perl library path?

LIB/INCLUDE are compiler variables

Well ... yes ... specifically, they're Microsoft Compiler variables. But MinGW is *not* Microsoft and LIB and INCLUDE are *not* MinGW compiler variables.

    From memory, there are some Makefile.PL scripts that assume Win32 == ActivePerl + Microsoft Compiler.

    So they look for LIB/INCLUDE and then convert them to other things that get passed to MinGW.

    That may well be resolved now though, I'll rip those environment variables out of Perl::Dist and see if it fails.
