This isn't a MinGW perl it is a MSYS perl which is why I was asking.
You'll need a MSYS development environment to install changes to that
perl.  This is the reason for your issue.

MSYS perl only exists to help support the use of autoconf's configure
scripts.  It is a requirement for autoconf and a native version cannot
be used because it doesn't understand the POSIX paths.

Depending on your use you may want to instead install something like
Strawberry PERL.  However if you are using MSYS to execute configure and
require added modules while doing so then installing the MSYS
development environment is the only option you will have.
