Can't build Qt in Windows from source, Perl installed but still can't find headers

  • I'm using Cygwin on Windows 7, 64-bit. I downloaded the 4.8.3. source and followed the instructions "here ":, putting <qtdir>/bin in PATH along with the path to my chosen compiler. Configure fails immediately,

    [QUOTE]$ ./configure

    Discussions "here ": and "here": identify the problem as being with Perl; however Perl is on my system and on the path. To be sure I went and downloaded/installed ActivePerl, after which I added Perl64/bin to the path. Same result.

    [QUOTE]$ whereis perl

    perl: /bin/perl.exe /usr/bin/perl.exe /usr/share/perl
    /cygdrive/c/Perl64/bin/perl.exe /cygdrive/c/Perl64/bin/perl516.dll

    $ echo $PATH

    /cygdrive/c/Perl64/bin:/cygdrive/c/gcc/bin:/bin: ...
    /cygdrive/c/Qt/4.8.3/bin [/QUOTE]

    Would very much appreciate some help out with this. Clearly it's some kind of paths issue but I don't know what else to include at this point
