Am having problems with trying fixes for the below errors --
once I encounter an error in making Win32, I can correct the source
files in another window, but I then it won't let me run "make" on
Win32 again w/o force because it already encountered an error.

If I do a make force, it re-unpacks the source files over my changes.
If I try to do the make by hand, I must not have my INC path setup,
as I get a missing "" when trying to "make" outside of

I tried adding line back in, but it didn't seem to make a difference.
It seems like it is unpacking into 1 place: build/libwin32-0.191
but then building parts of it in GSAR000[0-4]/...
Sorry...but am a bit unclear about where it is copying and building
sources...makes it difficult to do things manual at this point.

    What's the warning/prereq not found message about?

Where / how can I run make again within the cpan context?  Is there
a perlvar I can change using "!" in cpan to tellit to forget the fact
that make just failed?  Sorry, not a cpan expert bumbling
around in the jungle here...:-/
