I was trying to document installation of l2h under cygwin.

I get this perl error when I run `make test` at the end of the process 
of installation of latex2html.

The problem is clearly with perl on cygwin, but thought to ask here in 
case someone might have run l2h under cygwin and seen this. I send email 
to the cygwin mailing list on this, here is the link if someone wants 
more information:


This is snippet of the output where the error comes:
