It seems that metainfo have decided not to port sybperl to NT. I would
*love* to help with a port, but I don't have access to an NT machine.

I think the best place to start is from the NT port of Perl by Hip
communications. Building sybperl from there should be a case of
creating appropriate Makefiles (the NT port does not have the MakeMaker
stuff yet, as far as I know) and possibly getting .c files instead of
the .xs files (I don't know if xsubpp is available).

I am *really* quite willing to help anyone who wants to give this a try
(including sending pre-processed .xs files).
