I usually use Microsoft's tools (Visual C++) to build my Perl extensions. They ship nmake, which does make's job under Windows. There are other (free) tools, like Borland's compiler tools or Cygwin, but I don't know if using them to build modules works without trouble. I've never experienced heavy problems with the MS tools.

On systems without a compiler suite, I'd recommend using ppm. If the module is purely Perl, you could even just copy the module to Perl's site\lib directory.
Hope this helps.
