[pm-h] Installing perl modules

I am interested in a general discussion about Perl innards, particularly the 
installation of modules. I use Windows and PPM to install modules. When I 
encounter a module that is not in PPM, I am stumped. It doesn't appear to be 
that difficult, but I don't understand what make is all about ... or even if 
I need to use that.
