    The libraries are staticly linked into the binary that ppm downloads.

    Which build of ActivePerl are you using? The 5.6.0 AS perls needed some
    minor MakeMaker tweaks before I could build on Windows 98. I think the
    earlier 5.6.1 builds had a similar problem, but I'm not sure.

    For example the rule in the Makefile I get for the given target on Win98

    subdirs ::
            cd dynfilt
            $(MAKE) all $(PASTHRU)
            cd ..

    which nmake handles without a problem.
