I don't know about Cygwin - Catalyst runs alright natively under WinXP
for me using AS Perl.

You just need to have a suitable compiling environment (GCC as found
on Blooshed Dev-Cpp IDE will do) in order to install everything from
CPAN instead of relying on crappy PPM files and that's it.

You should give it a try. Being platform independent is one of the
goals of languages like Perl, after all.
