When I installed Device::SerialPort on  W2k with Cygwin 1.5.19
I copied the .tar.gz from CPAN into my home dir (the name of
which does not contain spaces even (though I don't know whether
that's relevant for the installation procedure)).

Then I untarred the file and followed the installation instructions
in the README (i.e., perl Makefile.PL, make, make test and make
install). Not all the tests were successful but the module works
for me (tm).
