in thread Where is Perl/Tk? bribes.org is offline?

Curious. I wonder why I'm getting this message then, when running 'cpan Tk':

Going to read 'C:\Perl64\cpan\Metadata'
  Database was generated on Mon, 28 Jan 2013 12:06:54 GMT
Warning: Cannot install tk, don't know what it is.
Try the command

    i /tk/

to find objects with matching identifiers.
CPAN: Time::HiRes loaded ok (v1.9721)

Is there an easy way a Windows user could install this package? Pardon my ignorance but I'm not up on running make builds on Windows (7).

thanks!

Hmm, never mind, might have been an uppercase (read: user) error.

But am now getting this:

Writing Makefile for Tk
'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
  SREZIC/Tk-804.030.tar.gz
  nmake -- NOT OK
Running make test
  Can't test without successful make
Running make install
  Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

    Something must be up with your environment. Here's what I get:

    Granted, mine's already installed.

[tye]: disable /proc and then see what it does?
[davido]: then it reads from /etc/passwd to decide who my uid is.
[davido]: sorry, typed that before you asked me to disable proc
[davido]: but you stumped me; don't know how to disable proc.
[tye]: I don't know if you can just dismount, but I thought so.
[davido]: yeah, umount -f isn't powerful enough.
[tye]: probably something in the init subsystem that does the mounting that you could disable and reboot.
davido needs to close laptop to board flight home from yapc.
[davido]: I'll look into it in a few hours probably.
