PPM "Fails" Question - What did I do wrong?
Message ID:
I was looking around the ActiveState PPM repository today and I noticed 
that a module I released recently was reported as having failed on most, 
but not all, platforms.  I'd like this module to appear in the 
ActiveState repository, so I figure I better fix my code up.

My problem is that I don't really understand the error reported:

"Makefile out-of-date with respect to Makefile.PL"
"Cleaning current config before rebuilding Makefile..."
	nmake -f Makefile.old
Microsoft (R) Progr	D:\cpanrun\build\5-8-0\bin\perl.exe Makefile.PL
Checking if your kit is complete...
Looks good
Writing MakNMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'false' : return code '0x1'
een rebuilt. <=="
"==> Please rerun the make command.  <=="

Attempts to Google pertinent parts of the error didn't really shed any 
light - at least for my feeble mind.  The module was created on Windows 
XP and built using nmake and Gnu tar/gzip.  It installed fine from the 
.gz file on my test platforms.

Any help is appreciated.
