The generated Makefile will be one that has been written for 
whatever-it-is-that 'perl -V:make' reports.
'perl -V:make' won't report 'mingw32-make.exe' - and even if it did, I don't 
think ExtUtils::MakeMaker would know how to write a makefile for that 
particular flavour of make.

Either nmake or dmake should work fine with MinGW on ActivePerl.
