Error Installing Mozilla::Dom on Win32

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

Hello Monks,

I get the following error when trying to install Mozilla::Dom on a win32 system. *Edit* I am running XP with ActiveState 5.8.*

I added the environmental variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH with the path to my FireFox installation (3.0.5), which contains the file xpcom.dll - which I am not sure if this is what the installation is actually looking for. It was of no help.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you in advance for the assistance.
Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw special) *** can not find package for any of (mozilla-xpcom >= 1.7, firefox-xpc +om >= 1.0, mozilla-firefox-xpcom >= 1.0) *** check that one of them is properly installed and available in PKG_ +CONFIG_PATH at line 43

    I (the lazy maintainer of Mozilla::DOM who needs to apply some patches some day...) haven't really made any support for Windows yet, pending people who use Windows actually trying to install it... The install assumes you have pkg-config. If you can figure it out, please let me know how to do the equivalent on Windows of what pkg-config does (concerning library and include flags for the compiler).

    Edit Makefile.PL to bypass that check.
