Success!!  I've been able to successfully build the EPICS base (without the cap5 
options)... Thank you Bejamin.  

Will now start to develop some IOCs and CASs.  Hopefully no issues with the build.
But will re-install a clean cygwin and perl (eventually)..  Thank you Andrew.

Thanks again for the help/assistance.  

Florencio

Follow Benjamin's suggestion of commenting out the "DIRS += cap5" line in the 
src/Makefile

Perl is essential for building EPICS software, but it doesn't need the other 
executables such as podchecker or pod2html that are used in src/cap5.  If you 
don't have any other issues with the build then your Perl installation is 
probably working sufficiently, although eventually you might want to try re-
installing it.
