Should that not be

 $self->{LIBS} = ['-L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.3.2/lib -ldb']

i.e. the -L before the -l

Could you try with only the hints/cygwin.pl change? I don't think you should
need the change to Makefile.PL as well.

Hmmm, thinking about this a bit more, I don't think that either
hints/cygwin.pl or Makefile.PL file is the correct place for this change.
The /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.x.y directory prefix is the default location for
installing recent versions of Berkeley DB on all unix-like architectures.
Configure needs to be changed to get it to know about
/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.x.y/lib and /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.x.y/include. Rather
than hard-wiring paths with version numbers (like /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.3.2)
it would be better if Configure could detect what was there itself. If I get
the time, I'll have a look at it.

Regarding the DB_File tests that are failing for you. Berkeley DB 3.2 isn't
officially released yet. The pre-release version I have (which is more
recent than yours) has known problems that make DB_File fail some tests. I
don't intend digging for problems at my end until the Sleepycat folk have a
stable 3.2 for me to play with.

Paul
