Just call nmake instead of make when you want to do your build, such as

 perl Makefile.PL
 nmake
 nmake test
 nmake install

I believe that the PPM utility can be run on the command line and can be used to install from files without using the internet (I think).  By the documentation it uses ppd or ppmx file to describe the install to the PPM utility.

This link contains a list of sites to get PPD (and the tarball) for packages.

I have never done it this way myself ... but I mention in case it may be useful to you.
