in thread Free MSVC tools + Activestate to compile CPAN Modules

This is wrong. For a project I'm working on we compile an XS module using Cygwin's mingw32 compiler, we don't use the MakeMaker Makefile but a hand rolled one, but the generated .dll still loads fine with ActivePerl.

Admitedly Cygwin is not much help with CPAN modules, as MakeMaker will produce nmake formated Makefiles, but if a mingw32 .dll will link fine then any version of MSVC should work.
