I've done several tries on compiling perl 5.8.2 on win xp (btw: use dmake and
ming - much easier than using vs).
If you do compile multiple times from the same source (even with "make clean"
in between) it hangs on every copy of the module's .pm-files: "overwrite
"always" gets you nowhere, as these are single file copy commands - so you'd
have to acknowledge every one.
I'd suggest that you either
- set COPYCMD=/Y in the Makefile(s),
- or at least tell to set that in the README.win32.
