I tried a number of different settings in the CONFIG file, but nothing 
helped.  I got it to create the makefile once, after I changed some 
permissions, but it didn't build because I had screwed up the config 
file.  Why didn't I just manually update my Makefile at this point?  
Because I'm a bonehead, I guess.  When I tried to run Makefile.PL again, 
it didn't update the makefile, so I did a "make clean" which wiped the 
makefile out.    
I updated my CONFIG file and ran Makefile.PL again, but no makefile 
created.  I changed the CONFIG back to the excact way it was when it DID 
work, but it would never create the makefile again.  Very inconsiderate 
of it, don't you think.  I'm giving up for now.

The following was also sent to me :

I might give this a try, but I've got to get an NT Server running 
Netscape, perl, etc. first.
