I use perl2exe (not free) to 'compile' .pl programs into .exe and NullSoft's
NSIS for the installer (free).
Tip when compiling via perl2exe:
For Perl modules that aren't .pm files (like Wx::Frame) you must change
"use base qw(Wx::Frame); "
"use vars qw(@ISA);
@ISA = qw(Wx::Frame);

Don't use perlcc. It just doesn't work. I prefer PAR these days (see
CPAN for details on PAR). Other possibilities are PerlApp from
ActiveState (included in their Perl Development Kit) or Perl2Exe from
IndigoStar. PAR is the only free alternative.
To create nice looking installers, I'd say there are three options:
PerlMSI (again included in ActiveState's PDK), which is not free,
NullSoft's NSIS (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/site/index.php) or
PS: My combination currently is PAR with InnoSetup...I'm considering NSIS...
