install SVN::Client on Windows

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

I am trying to install SVN::Client on a windows platform.

I have SVN already installed.

Perl 5.10

The build craps out due to line 108 in Builder.pm

my $ok = $self->_run("sh configure @{[$self->notes('configure_args +')]}");
Where the error code says
Running sh configure --libdir=C:\Perl\site\lib\Alien\SVN --prefix=C:\P +erl\site PERL=c:\perl\bin\perl.exe 'sh' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable pr +ogram or batch file. configuring SVN failed at inc/My/SVN/Builder.pm line 114, <STDIN> line + 3. Something went wrong with the Subversion configuration. Please attempt to correct it and re-run Build.PL.
obviously "sh" doesn't work, it's windows!

Running build just complains that "dmake" does not have a target.

I looked for pre-compiled ActiveState compatible repos, but could not find any.

Any ideas??

Sandy

    Find one in a PPM::Repositories , otherwise you will have to compile subversion yourself, which requires that you install python among other things (see INSTALL)

    What if you install MinGW, which contains coreutils (including sh) and compiler?
    Sorry if my advice was wrong.
      I will give that a shot, thankyou
