MQSeries module compilation on ActiveState 5.8 + cygwin

Hello,
can anyone provide help in compiling latest MQSeries module with cygwin gcc + make?
perl Makefile.pl goes ok while I get with make
Makefile:934: *** missing separator.  Stop.

line 934 of Makefile:
 $(PM_TO_BLIB)
<<

any windows precompiled ppm would be great
Thanks

Either a) rebuild perl from source with gcc (5.8.2 builds just fine with no hassle), or b) use VC++ and nmake to build this module.  ActiveState Perl was built with VC++ and MakeMaker generates Makefile for nmake, hence the error.
