First off, please use the Ifeffit mailing list


which is the proper place to ask questions about and report problems 
with the software.  As you can see, I have CCed my response to you and 
to the mailing list.  Please continue correspondence on this topic via 
the mailing list.

The most likely source of this problem is the one discussed here


that is, that you have another version of MinGW installed on your 
computer, either that you yourself installed or that was installed by 
another application.  This fellow, for example, had installed GnuPG and 
this triggered a similar conflict to what you see.


Another possible problem is that you have another version of perl itself 
installed on you computer, again possibly as part of the installation of 
another package.
