Another possible solution would be if anybody had ActivePerl 5.6 as well as
MS VC++ 6.0, he could build the module, pack together the build directory
(with "blib" subdirectory and all) and send it to you.
Unfortunately I don't use ActivePerl myself (but I have MS VC++ 6.0).
How much time does it cost to install it?
(I have virtually no free time at the moment, alas, otherwise I'd do it)
