NMAKE : fatal error U1077by yellowman (Initiate)

yellowman has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am trying to build Perl 5.8.8 from source using nmake and I am getting the following error:
NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\xcopy.EXE' : return code '0x4' Stop.
My compiler is nmake from the MS Visual C++ Express Edition 2008
I have never built Perl from source before so I figured I would give it a shot.
nmake seems to work, nmake test also seems to work, nmake install fails with the above error
I can get it to skip the error by doing the install with the /I flag, but it looks like a partial install because it only installs wperl.exe and not perl.exe.I can send my Makefile if you guys want to take a look... Here are what some of the variables equal:
