If you encounter an error with cpan, first have a look in the package
and bug reports at
The README also helps.

Please report at the link [ View/Report Bugs (2) ] there.
Since you can write the Makefile within the debugger and not via the shell
there is some weird problem on your side.

All cygwin smoke tests passed.

A suggestion would be to install CPAN::Reporter and report the failure
automatically, since you are not able to follow README's and submit
proper bugreports.
