Hallo JoNO,

At first, make sure that in your Cygwin environment are no
paths in PATH with spaces like this:
> /cygdrive/c/Program Files/SecureCRT 3.0

Then check the permissions on your executables:
$ ls -l /bin/perl
should look like this:
-rwxr-xr-x    1 gerrit   Domänen-    14848 Dec  9 17:56 /bin/perl*
 ^ ^^ ^^ ^
including at least the 'r-x' for all groups.

Also try to update the MakeMaker module to the latest version,
like Soren suggested.
