This bug evidently goes back a long way:  MM 6.06_02 fails in the same 
way as 6.13.

I tried to use MM 6.06_01, but it wouldn't build itself ("don't know how 
to make 'C:\perl5\libNAME'").  Instead, I knife-and-forked it into 
place, but when I tried to use it to build libapreq, I just got the same 
error again - "don't know how to make 'C:\perl5\libNAME'".

So the best I can offer you at this stage is that something between 6.05 
and 6.06_02 broke it.  (Probably not what you wanted to hear, I guess, 
looking at the number of changes in 6.06_01.)
