Strawberry Perl is my go-to package for getting a sane development
environment in Windows. Just today, I was trying to install App::Ack on an
old Dell, and found Strawberry Perl very helpful in the process. Compiling
modules with C extensions like ack requires
make<https://github.com/petdance/ack2/issues/255>,
which doesn't work so well in Windows.
Try using 'dmake' to install App::Ack.  IIRC it's already included
with Strawberry.


Exactly, there is 'dmake' for installation like

C:\any_pkg_root_dir> perl Makefile.PL
...
C:\any_pkg_root_dir> dmake test
...
C:\any_pkg_root_dir> dmake install

On top of that there is also GNU make bundled with strawberry perl as 'gmake' (it is intended for special purposes)
