    Which makefile?

For win32 platforms, it's the one in the win32 directory. Do a dir README* in your toplevel perl source directory to see all the numerous README's there are. The one of interest to you will be README.win32. All you need to know is contained in the README for your platform, or as comments in the Makefile for your platform.

I don't know what you mean by "external XS", but many of the core modules use XS and , like Compress::Zlib and Data::Dumper, and practically all XS modules #include "XSUB.h" which does #include "perlapi.h".

I urge you to getyourself a copy of perl, and try to basically replicate what they did (cause it sounds very fishy).

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;"

    Sounds as though it is more of a question of how did they manage to build a version without rather than a version with. Well, if nothing else you've defined my homework for the next several largish time units. Guess I've put off going all the way with perl long enough! Thanks again.
