Generally building packages for AS perl with mingw is a pita.  I have sorted out most of the issues in the 
last few years I have been building Gtk2-perl for AS perl, and could send the scripts I am using, but you 
will need MSYS as well (I use grep, which I guess I could replace with perl code, but do not have time right 

The other option is if you can point me to the Gtk2 build you are using, I can compile them for you against 
that version of Gtk2.



I tried camelbox but without installing the core perl which was needed with 
it, and that was not working either with my perl 5.8.9 from ActiveState.

I'm reluctant to have two perl versions installed, it's not very elegant at 
least, and even in twisting the path when using the gtk2 in a script, I 
prefer to keep the binaries I have found for ActiveState.

The questions will come again when I upgrade and possibly move to another 
perl distribution.


At this point I have to ask why you're not using Camelbox.  All this
work is done for you already, you just have to run the installer and
let it do it's magick.  It looks like the only downside to running
Camelbox for you would be the fact that you have different versions of
Perl and GTK installed and listed in your %PATH environment variable,
and you would need to clean up your %PATH (remove any GTK and Perl
paths not related to Camelbox) prior to trying to use Camelbox.  This
could be done quite easily by using a DOS batch file, and you would
not need to make any systemwide changes.
