I know I'm starting to get off topic here with Perl questions, but I would
love to know how to get PDCurses running with Perl.  What did you use to
compile the stock version of Perl?  Can it be done with mingw32 or the
Borland or Watcom compilers or do you have to use a distribution like
cygwin to compile?
