Interesting, Cairo's make install has put the cairo.dll in I:\strawberry\per\lib\auto\Cairo which makes me suspect that my script that reconfigures CPAN may be pointing to the wrong installation directory.

As for recompiling... the Makefile has it's own ideas on that.

I don't think that will matter. The real problem is that I gave you a bum steer on the 'dlltool' command that needs to be run. You need to specify the dll name in the command. Try:
```dlltool --input-def Glib.def --output-lib libGlib.a --dllname Glib.dll
... and similar re Cairo.

Excellent, I had just finished replicating my work on a standard Strawberry Perl and Glade/Gtk2 install (rather than my compiler-onna-stick) with the same results.

...will try againg later. I have a Lada to fix and post holes to dig1.

PS: I come from a strict QA working environment (GLP, Good Laboratory Practice, standard set by the OECD, it's a bitch to work under, let alone manage IT systems) where you're meant to be proud of finding and fixing errors. We didn't do cover ups, we did great huge song and dance numbers about them, and signed them off in 15,000 places.
