Apache::Logfile on Winnt?

nop has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, folks. Please pardon a mod_perl apache newbie question:
I need a custom log for certain data under Apache.
My limited mod_perl knowledge is coming from
The Mod Perl Developers Cookbook.
The cookbook strongly recommends Apache:Logfile:
You could try doing this yourself, but the complexities of opening and closing logfiles in a multi-process Apache server are, shall we say, difficult. Instead, using the CPAN module Apache::Logfile is quite simple... (p. 552)
Sadly, I'm using a Windows machine for development (ack) and there seems to be no ppm for it yet (indigo or activestate). Can anyone offer advice? Did I miss a ppm somewhere? Is there a good substitute? I'm taking the cookbook's warning, knowing I don't know enough to do it right myself.

Thanks

nop

    I installed it on Activestate on W2K using the cpan module.

    Note that you probably need to have Visual C++ installed to be able to this. Atleast nmake, if there are no xs components.

      I lack a C++ compiler on this machine. :( nop
