Maybe I'll come to the pending Win32::API problem with the callbacks on gcc also. A simple hack30-like solution should always be possible. Or a fallback to C::Dynalib.
Win32::OLE didn't compile OOTB, but this is easy. Just forgot where I put the patch.
And your /usr/include/iodbcunix.h was wrong. Had to patch it to compile Win32::ODBC. Will send it later.

It would be be fantastic if you can. I am making a lot of use of this module at the moment to call third party dlls.

Which of these three?
Win32::API callbacks will need some time.
Use the two other, better perl FFI's instead (FFI, C::Dynalib)

For Win32::OLE there was a patch somewhere which I didn't apply nor tested yet.

Win32::ODBC and the rest of the libwin32 suite works ok.
Win32::GUI also.
Maybe a seperate perl-tk package will be appreciated also, now that I heard that it works after applying some known patches.

Should I publish the 5.8.5 package or wait for 5.8.6?
I'm quite busy with postgresql and phpwiki now.

Please wait with 3rd party extemsions after 5.8.6 is out.
