The first time you try to install a Perl package from CPAN, you might get this error:
Writing MYMETA.yml MIYAGAWA/App-cpanminus-1.6935.tar.gz make -- NOT OK Running make test Can't test without successful make Running make install Make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
The fix is simple: you need to install the make package. This error typically occurs on Cygwin, which does not have make installed by default. Install make and then try to install the package again and it should work now.
Tried with: Cygwin x86 1.7.25
