I've put a screenshot up at:

i've run into this in the past...  it's a pointless limitation of the 
windows command shell.

i worked around it, barely, by editing generated Makefile and 
converting the FUNCLIST line from this format:

   'FUNCLIST' => [q[SvGChar], q[SvGParamFlags], ... ],

to this format:

   FUNCLIST => [qw(SvGChar SvGParamFlags ...)],

that converts the 5 chars of each "[, q[" to one space, a savings of 
4 chars per word, and there are a lot of words there.  last time i 
tried this, that was enough to get that line below the max command 
line length.

the code that generates this command line is part of the perl build 
system, and i have not looked into how to fix it correctly.

I see.
I have some swear-words saved up for just such an occasion.
Thanks muppet, I'll give it a go ASAP.
