in thread win32api::commport install fails

The only error there (relatively hidden in the middle of the wall of output) is:

syntax error at -e line 1, near "'755') " Missing right curly or square bracket at -e line 1, at end of line

In context, that appears to be a problem with the parsing of the generated Makefile. It looks like nmake was run but the Makefile wasn't generated in a manner compatible with nmake. And given that it said to run "make ..." several places, that doesn't surprise me.

If I had gotten that output and wanted to get the module installed, my next step would be to follow this nugget of the instructions nestled in that wall of output:

For those without 'make' or an equivalent like 'nmake' or 'dmake' ther +e are perl-only scripts which do the same things: Test with: perl nomake_test Install with: perl nomake_install

    Whoops. cpan is having a conflict between the ActivePerl and Strawberry configs since they are sharing the same folder in my home dir.
