I hope it isn't ... The use of the 8.3 filename was
deliberate, to help cope with possible directories with
spaces in their names.

That is weird ... For one thing,
     nmake perl_test
just does, as you found,
[ ... ]

so it does a cd into glue/perl and nmakes test from there.

A couple of things perhaps to check:
- does the error log report anything useful?
- does reconfiguring things as, from the top-level
     nmake clean
     Perl Makefile.PL
     nmake test
     nmake perl_glue
     nmake perl_test
change anything?
- have you installed a previous version of libarpeq2, and
perhaps some parts of that are being picked up? This has
gotten me before, and if so, I'll have to add in some checks
that the proper libs are being used.
