My guess is that it's EU::MM (not gmake) that's causing the problem.

I doubt it :)

You can't up and switch out make for dmake for gmake for ... and not expect problems from everything, esp a Tk-TableMatrix-1.23/Makefile.PL from 2006

This can't have been a surprise for strawberryperl

    Yes, I don't think anyone's sitting around thinking "I can't believe this has happened".

        I think that dmake is no longer being maintained, and that in itself may have been his main concern - or maybe he had also struck specific cases where dmake wasn't up to the task.
        He's certainly savvy enough to know that issues such as presented in this thread could well be lurking.

        It has been possible to build perl on Windows using gmake since 5.23.x and I've been doing that since then. In the early stages there were some issues - most of which were ironed out by patches to EU::MM. But there's always the threat of the issues you don't know about.

        Cheers,
        Rob
