I just successfully built Curses for Win32 this week.  You can build with
PDCurses.  You need to have stock perl 5.6.x, the ActiveState version will
simply not work.  After building PDCurses, you then need to build the Curses
CPAN module.  This will give you the version of curses.dll (with curses.exp
needed on win32) that can be installed and bootstrapped in Perl.
