It's not clear from your message whether you can build perl with 64 bit ints
OK, but the embedding stage barfs, or that you can't even build perl with 64
bit ints. I'm not in a position to try replicate this as I don't have access
to a Windows machine.

Also, we don't know about the active perl source here, so if you absolutely
need to use that, you will have to ask Activestate. Can you try building
with the vanilla perl source from CPAN (eg
) and send the build error messages for the first part that seems to barf?

You almost hit the spam filter (which is nothing to do with me,
but seems to be very effective at stopping genuine spam)
Sending plain text e-mail rather than multipart/alternative (particularly
with an image attached solely for the HTML message background) should get
you a safe distance below the radar.
