A question and an observation about dmake

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

If like me you've been bitten by:
C:\>dmake dmake.exe: Error: -- `C:\Perl\libConfig.pm' not found, and can't be m +ade

Certainly follow the excellent advice at Re^2: how to install perlmodules in windowsXP but pay particular attention to the aside about renaming nmake.exe In my case I not only had it installed in c:\perl\bin, but for some reason in c:\program files\mozilla— don't know why just did. Repeat your usage of "perl -V:make" until it shows dmake. Don't forget to run makefile again so that this time the correct information will be set.

The question in the title is— what does "dmake.exe: Warning: -- Target [blibdirs] was made but the time stamp has not been updated." mean? I typically get some number (variable) of these. Since they are warnings, I ignore them, but the compulsive in me wants to know what I'm ignoring on the off chance that it is somehow significant...

      This would explain why the question felt so familiar! Don't know what you mean about Yoda--- in this case it is more like a Homer Simpson moment with attendant head-slap... Thanks for the link back :)
