trouble using CPAN from cygwin (fwd)

I've posted about porting Win32 modules before.

It's not impossible and in some cases it's not that difficult at all. Look
out for the use of Macros from MFC or anything else you are not likely to
have an import library for.

Right now I'm trying to get the latest release source from ActiveState for
several modules in libwin32 as it has not been published on CPAN.

Good luck.
