    Writing Makefile for XML::Simple Makefile out-of-date with respect to C:\strawberry\perl\lib\Config.pm +C:\strawberry\perl\lib\CORE\config.h

    Since the newly written Makefile is out-of-date with respect to some files which should definitely have been created/modified earlier, it seems there's something fishy with your system clock...  Maybe check the timestamps and set your clock correctly.

      Thank you that helped! My server date and time were wrong.

    ==> Your Makefile has been rebuilt. <== ==> Please rerun the dmake command. <==

    So Please rerun the dmake command.

      Done that :) Problem was with server date and time, date was off by a few months. Changing the date and time solved the problem.

        As you've discovered, time is very important :) Consider using ntp to manage this for you.
