need HTML::Strip for Perl (windows xp/activeperl)

Hi, I need to install the HTML::Strip module on my new laptop. I downloaded the .zip file from CPAN but it needs to be built. So I got a copy of nmake, but it is having trouble locating a file called 'cl'. Does anyone know how to fix this? (or can give me the built version I can just copy into my perl directory).

    Well if you have to compile it yourself you must have some compile available, just adding a make -utiltiy is not sufficient.
    The file called cl is the command line C compiler from Microsoft. AFAIK there is a free edition available for download from someo the Microsoft Servers.
