Ok, took the time to read the node which deals with linking and updated my initial post to include a direct link to sourceforge... looks way better now!
Yes, I used cpan to update outdated and install missing modules, so everything should be compiled/linked using the mingw-toolchain. I tried both strawberry-perl 5.10 and 5.12. The version numbers of the used programs:
- gcc: gcc (GCC) 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3)
- g++: g++ (GCC) 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3)
- ld: GNU ld version 2.17.50 20060824
- gcc: gcc (GCC) 4.4.3
- g++: g++ (GCC) 4.4.3
- ld: GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 184.108.40.20600123
