I am not able to install IO-Tty 1.07 in windows xp i am using Active state 5.8.8

when i am trying to compile it is showing the following error

Can u please help me

D:\Perl\mods\IO-Tty-1.07>perl Makefile.pl
Set up gcc environment - 3.4.5 (mingw-vista special r3)
Now let's see what we can find out about your system
(logfiles of failing tests are available in the conf/ dir)...

ERROR: cannot run the configured compiler 'gcc'
(see conf/compilerok.log). Suggestions:
1) The complier 'gcc' is not in your PATH. Add it
to the PATH and try again. OR
2) The compiler isn't installed on your system. Install it. OR
3) You only have a different compiler installed (e.g. 'gcc').
Either fix the compiler config in the perl Config.pm
or install a perl that was built with the right compiler
(you could build perl yourself with the available compiler).

Note: this is a system-administration issue, please ask your local
admin for help. Thank you.

Have you tried using PPM to install the module?

IN PPM there is no IO::TTY module

PPM has recently added the ability to install MinGW compiler. You'll find it in the list of available modules.
