[Bug-gnupod] gnupod on Windows XP/7, install/configure/make issues

Warning: new kid on the list

Based on rapidrepair.com threads
with Richie, i was directed to gnupod.   I'm trying to push 30,000+
songs to my 240GB modified ipod 5.5 gen which is dying due to itunesDB
issues.  I understand I can use the low_ram_attr in the config file to
trim the database of junk to break this barrier.


I have loaded onto Windows XP SP3:
cygwin (took a few tries to get the gcc/make going as options) +
ActivePerl 5.8 (because several attempts with 5.10 that came with
cygwin failed), and installed several missing perl modules during the
./configure stage to finally get to a passing status.

-> use 'make install' to install GNUpod
-> use 'info GNUpod' to read the documentation after you installed GNUpod
-> use 'make uninstall' to remove GNUpod from /usr/local

But when i run make install, it pukes based on some kind of pathing
issue --- assuming Win32 translation error of some sort.

Would love to get this running, any guidance from someone with cygwin
experience would be great.   I attempted several hacks on the make
routine to get past it but no go.


At the moment, I am running the .pl gnupod commands directly from
ActiveState Perl (outside of the *NIX cygwin) environment. Using the
gnupodrc control file has been a life-saver in my hammering. I've
managed to make it suck in my itunesDB from the ipod and rewrite it
back out, all without hosing my ipod.


Thanks in advance for any assistance/guidance.
