The 0.17019 version as shipped with Cygwin64 fails the test suite (but
otherwise works fine for me); I didn't look why exactly it does this.
The current version 0.17022 passes all tests once you've installed a new
enough Module::Build.  I recommend you use App::cpanminus to bootstrap
the build dependencies.

If Reini can be persuaded to unbundle perl_vendor into it's constituent
distributions, then yes.  Otherwise I'd have to maintain another build
environment just for this and change many things in my build process; I
simply don't have the time to do this at the moment.
