An excellent (and much needed) update!
I'm surprised you didn't mention Randy Kobes' excellent PPM::Make module.
I am a big fan of using only one package management system for my software whenever possible. So I use PPM exclusively on my Windows systems. Since many modules lack available PPMs, PPM::Make makes the process of creating and installing PPMs very simple.
I build using mingw and nmake. I use the following steps:
ppm install foo.ppd
I do my installs the hard way, because I like to be able to see each step in easy bite-sized pieces that my tiny brain can handle. If I wanted to just install and go, I could use the ppm_install command and do everything all in one go.
