Subject: Spaces in folder name causes Windows build failure
Hi. It looks like building Alien::wxWidgets doesn't work on Windows in a folder with a space in its name. I unzipping Alien-wxWidgets-0.62.tar.gz into a folder called 'Alien-wxWidgets-0.62 2.8.12 global', and doing perl Build failed at: Creating library file: ..\..\src\stc\..\..\..\lib\gcc_dll\libwxmsw28u_stc.a Unable to find setup.h in directory at inc/My/Build/Win32\.pm line 117 Trying again but with underscores in the folder name rather than spaces, the build completes fine. It's easy enough to avoid this problem once you know about it. So if it's tricky to fix I suggest a note in the installation instructions saying "Don't do that" would be fine. Cheers.
