I don't see what current problems there are with dmake and nmake that would be fixed by a move to GNU make - both other utilities work to build Perl and build its modules, and Perl does not use a make tool for anything else. But as you already seem to have a pretty clear picture of the steps to take, feel free to add a submodule to ExtUtils::MakeMaker that outputs GNU make syntax under Windows. The module is only "doomed" in the sense that schwern has a talk on this out. So far, there has come no replacement for ExtUtils::MakeMaker that is much better if better at all for building and installing Perl modules.

[1nickt]: pryrt I am creating a Type to check valid user IDs, which must be a whole number greater than or equal to zero. I would like to disallow 1.0 but because of this behaviour, by the time it is checked by the constraint, it *is* an Int.
[LanX]: should this be considered? Re: Parsing .txt into arrays

[pryrt]: LanX, I would vote "keep" if it were considered: it's not helpful, but it could be taken multiple ways, not all of which are offenseive...
[pryrt]: 1nickt: if you are checking for valid user IDs, then I wouldn't care about the difference between 1.0 and 1: I would take either as a valid representation of the integer user ID#1
[LanX]: and this Re^2: extract column data
