Win32 requires that *all* symbols be resolved at link time. This places some extra demands on the link stage for perl modules, which is complicated by the fact that the dll containing the needed gperl* symbols for Gtk2 is actually located in the perl library and not the standard search path. Also, this is highly non-portable, so it should be unsurprising that our makefiles don't support it well. :-/

Yaakov Selkowitz has solved this problem, and keeps cygwin binaries available at form_cat=229 , although it looks like the current versions there are a little old.

We have tried to integrate as many of his build fixes as possible, but some are simply artifacts of win32 brokenness and are not appropriate.

Beyond that, i don't know what to tell you. If you can send a few more details, we can try to help you through it.
