in thread SOLVED (mostly): Tk Package Fails to Make

Hmmmm, there's definitely something wrong here

Yes, something is definitely wrong with MinGW. Which Windows OS do you have ?

Save the following script as try.c:
int main (void) { return 0; }
Then cd to the directory that contains 'try.c' and run:
gcc -o try.exe try.c -v
What output do you get ?
(I'm still interested to see the perl -V output too, btw.)
