At first, i saw this, all your mounts are in textmode, they should be 
in binmode, i think.
> Can't open base file /c/TEMP\cc000554.base
> G:    /g       user    textmode
> c:    /c       user    textmode
> d:    /d       user    textmode
> e:    /e       user    textmode
> f:    /f       user    textmode
> h:    /h       user    textmode
> i:    /i       user    textmode
> j:    /j       user    textmode

That are my mounts, for me building Perl-Modules works good.
Not without errors, but it is o.k.:

c:    /hdd/c   system  binmode
d:    /hdd/d   system  binmode
e:    /hdd/e   system  binmode
f:    /cdrom/f  system  binmode
g:    /cdrom/g  system  binmode
h:    /hdd/h   system  binmode
i:    /hdd/i   system  binmode

At second point, i suggest, it would be a good idea, to build perl 
again with the latest cygwin-release, maybe, it works better then.
