Wouldn't passing -I and -L do that? (extra paths) Editing is out of the question.

so you really need to "show" them to Makefile.PL somehow.

I'm open for suggestions (I cracked open Makefile.PL at one point, added stuff to LIBS and INC, as well as cracking the Makefile itself open and doing that under CCFLAGS, but that didn't really solve anything I didn't by hardcoding the stuff myself as described in the original thread ~ I really disliked doing that)

At this point I really am convinced (since i'm using zlib 1.1.4, cause I can't find no other) that this is mostly due to my zlib version ~ most likely the Tk::PNG stuff needs to be updated to work with the newer zlib/libpng (imgPNG.c is the heart'n'soul of the module ~ i'm not an xs hacker).

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
perl -e "$q=$_;map({chr unpack qq;H*;,$_}split(q;;,q*H*));print;$q/$q;"

    Here is one of my diff files to gain similar things:
    --- D:\WORK\PerlCompile\perl-5.6.1-x\compile-extensions\XML-Parser-2.3 +0\xxx\Makefile.PL Thu Apr 19 22:01:23 2001 +++ Makefile.PL Thu Apr 19 21:50:10 2001 @@ -24,7 +24,7 @@ WriteMakefile( NAME => 'XML::Parser::Expat', C => ['Expat.c'], - LIBS => $libs, + LIBS => "-L$Config{libpth} -L$Config{libpth}\\Relea +se vcl.lib $libs", XSPROTOARG => '-noprototypes', VERSION_FROM => '', @extras
    So add/edit Makefile.PL in a similar way.

    Courage, the Cowardly Dog.
