I had better luck with Win32API-Registry-0.21 and although I had to
tweak some things during the build (the Makefile clean target needs
some leading spaces changed to a tab, and buffers.h needs some trailing
^M stripped) it basically seems to work.  POLLUTE=1 is not needed.

With "make test", fails 18 and 21, but the other 209 tests are ok.
