Recently resolved bug at gnu.org https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?46304 The problem wasn't interfering with installation of cpan modules but was interfering with building of Perl6 MoarVM - see https://github.com/MoarVM/MoarVM/issues/292. Given the Makefile below # start of Makefile CC=gcc hello.exe : hello.o gcc -o hello.exe hello.o #end of Makefile Strawberry Perl gmake will compile hello.c with g++ instead of gcc because gmake was, apparently inapropriately, built with a default rule that said ".c" files should be treated like ".C" files (upper case C being treated as C++). %.o: %.c # recipe to execute (built-in): $(COMPILE.C) $(OUTPUT_OPTION) $< The COMPILE.C should be COMPILE.c as detailed in the gnu bug report. The hello.c file is standard but included below for completeness. /*************** hello.c ****************/ #include <stdio.h> int main(int argc, char **argv) { printf("hello world\n"); }

I was running Strawberry Perl 5.22.01 (64 bit) and that version has the problem. Strawberry Perl 5.20, at least the latest release that I downloaded, does not have the problem.
