Well, you could use gcc, or use Strawberry Perl, or bug ActiveState to
ppm'ify a lot more CPAN modules. I'm guessing there's no PPM of
Config::Any either -- did that install OK from CPAN? 

You could try Cygwin, too. My experience is that ActiveState Perl is
best avoided, but I haven't used Windows in quite a while, so maybe
that's changed.
