Howto Build PPM packages from compiled Windows binaries

Credit to a post on perlmonks for this:

In your build directory, tar.gz the "blib" directory.  Then run "nmake
ppd" to create a ppd file.

c:\> tar cvf package.tar blib
c:\>gzip --best package.tar
c:\>nmake ppd

Open the resulting *.ppd file and add the name of the tar.gz file you
created between the double quotes of the portion that reads:


Save the file.  To install:

c:\>ppm install *.ppd

Works like a charm.  The really nice thing about this method is you
can also uninstall packages if you find you don't like them (or you
break something).

c:\>ppm remove *.ppd
