Thank you for the bug report.  What Win32 perl are you running?  From

Where is nmake in your path?  If you compile with this as "nmake.exe"
does it give the same error?

If you make it a proper URL with a full scheme, does it work? E.g.

That's probably spurious based on the failure of the proxy -- possibly
CPAN is guessing the failure is due to lack of authentication.  Again,
if you use the full URL for the proxy, do you get this or not?
(Either way it sounds like a CPAN bug)
