perlwinky has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
From last few weeks I have been trying really hard to get PBC installed in CYGWIN but failing to do so. I am a beginner in this area and really confused about the installation process. I have used CPAN to install Crypt::PBC after installing all of its dependencies like Math::BigInt, Math::BigInt::GMP, MIME::Base64, ExtUtils::MakeMaker, XSLoader, Devel::Checklib and now while I'm installing PBC it prompted me to download the tarball from "voltar.org" website but apparently the PBC file was not getting downloaded and unpacked. So i changed the code to request http://crypto.stanford.edu/pbc/files/ for the tarball. Now i get to unpack properly but while building it I'm facing a problem where it "Can't link/include GMP". I have installed GMP related files but still the error pops up.
I would be immensely grateful if you could help me out with this.
