to correctly build a module, most of the times (if not always)
you should have built the Perl executable with the same compiler
you want to use to build the module.
this is because ExtUtils::MakeMaker uses a lot of information
from the Config module, which is built together with Perl.
your Perl binary is probably instructed to build a Makefile
which is not suitable for either Borland's or Dev-C++'s needs.
you can try to manually patch Config.pm and specify your
compiler, libraries, include paths, and so on, but it's
probably simpler if recompile Perl instead :-)
