NMAKE : fatal error U1077

NMAKE : fatal error U1077 Can't Post

I am trying to build Perl 5.8.8 from source using nmake and I am getting the following error:

NMAKE : fatal error U1077: 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\xcopy.EXE' : return code '0x4'

My compiler is nmake from the MS Visual C++ Express Edition

I have never built Perl from source before so I figured I would give it a shot.

nmake seems to work
nmake test also seems to work
nmake install fails with the above error

I can get it to skip the error by doing the install with the /I flag, but it looks like a partial install because it only installs wperl.exe and not perl.exe.

I attached my Makefile if you guys want to take a look...

Any ideas?
