Validator on NT4 - Iconv problems

Hello All,

I previously got validator running on WinNT without too much trouble.
I recently downloaded a newer tar ball, and haven't managed to get it
running again.  (In my great wisdom, I overwrote the old one)

The problem I'm having is with the perl module: iconv (file:check v
1.91 line 25).

I downloaded Text-Iconv-1.1 from
http://www.cpan.org/modules/by-authors/Michael_Piotrowski/?S=A.  I
also downloaded libiconv-1.6.1.tar.gz from
http://clisp.cons.org/~haible/packages-libiconv.html as suggested in
the readme for Text-Iconv-1.1.  I installed MSVC 6.0 and was able to
build libiconv, both for static and shared library.  (I wasn't sure
which one was required.)  I followed the instructions for installing
libiconv, and then tried building Text-Iconv-1.1.

Making the Makefile seems to work ok

If I try the gnu make on that, I get the following error:
Makefile:781: *** missing separator.  Stop.

If I try nmake I get this output:

Any help would be appreciated.  Once I manage build iconv, I will also
need to know which files to put where.  e.g. iconv.pm in the
Perl/lib/Text folder - I don't know what else.

Or maybe someone could point me to an earlier tar ball that doesn't
use this module.
