Nice, using php is not a bad idea here indeed.

Good point, these have only been required in recent releases, and we  
didn't check with David whether he had added the new modules to his zip.

should have what you need, although I'm not entirely sure how perl  
modules work on windows.

If that doesn't work, the alternative is to edit check.pl and comment  
out (with a # before the given line) the line requiring  
Encode::JIS2K. The validator would still work, you'd only lose  
support for some Japanese encodings.
