From looking at enc2xs it should be using the "byte_t.c" argument as
$cname on lines 155 and 156, so I can't see why you're getting that
warning and error.

Did you edit win32/Makefile to set CCTYPE to MSVC90 ?

Besides that you might try editing cpan/Encode/bin/enc2xs to dump the
contents of %opt before line 154 to try and diagnose the problem.
