I have been building Perl packages for years without problems. I use
WWW::Mechanize in several programs, and it has a lot of

Missed that, thanks!
I don't know why Cygwin "upgraded" me from Perl 5.22 to Perl 5.24. I
am building a new Cygwin installation from scratch (via setup) and it
has Perl 5.22 (as expected) and gcc 6.4. I seem to remember this
problem happening in the not-too-distant past when gcc 6.x was
experimental, so I probably picked up the experimantal Perl 5.24 as
well. I tried to roll back Perl from 5.24 -> 5.22 in my existing
Cygwin (non-experimental) installation but "perl --version" still
returned version 5.24
Anyway, I'll have a clean installation soon, I hope.
