Many thanks to those that replied to my problem of installing Catalyst on
WinXP.  The version of Module::Install I am using is 0.61
I tried the setting ACTIVEPERL_CONFIG_DISABLE = 1 before entering
the cpan shell but I got the same errors as before.   

The link (http://bugs.activestate.com/show_bug.cgi?id=45338 ) supplied by
"Thomas L. Shinnick" solved the problem.
Exactly as he wrote in his bug report, the following works perfectly with
ActivePerl 5.8.8 build 817:

1. unpack Catalyst-5.6902.tar.gz 
2. perl -wd Makefile.PL
   and typing 'c' to execute the makefile build script. 
   The makefile is produced without hitting error messages about

3. nmake
4. nmake test
5. nmake install
