ExtUtils-MakeMaker and Win32 woes: call for assistance
Message ID:
Hi, folks,

The branch has ExtUtils-MakeMaker-7.01_04
integrated and it is failing the cpan/ExtUtils-MakeMaker/t/miniperl.t test as follows:

C:\cygwin64\home\Administrator\repos\perl.git\t>.\perl harness -v ..\cpan\ExtUtils-MakeMaker\t\miniperl.t
../cpan/ExtUtils-MakeMaker/t/miniperl.t ..
ok 1 - setup
ok 2 - chdir'd to Big-Dummy
ok 3 - run("C:\cygwin64\home\Administrator\repos\perl.git\t\perl.exe" Makefile.PL)
Can't use an undefined value as a symbol reference at ../../lib/ line 618.
ok 4 - run("dmake")END failed--call queue aborted.

# Looks like your test exited with 255 just after 5.
ok 5
Dubious, test returned 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00)
All 5 subtests passed

Test Summary Report
../cpan/ExtUtils-MakeMaker/t/miniperl.t (Wstat: 65280 Tests: 5 Failed: 0)
  Non-zero exit status: 255
Files=1, Tests=5,  6 wallclock secs ( 0.02 usr +  0.00 sys =  0.02 CPU)
Result: FAIL

This is a core-only test as it tests miniperl, both mingw64 and VC++ compiled perls exhibit the same

I am at the end of my knowledge and patience trying to fix this, so am appealing for any Windows experts to assist
in trying to resolve this.

To (mis)quote the LEGO movie, everything else is awesome, but this test failure is holding up the entire v7.02 release
process of ExtUtils-MakeMaker.

Many thanks in advance,
