It looks like you have now done enough research to ask the right questions. This package appears to meet your needs and is thus worth the effort to install. The author admits that it can be difficult to install. (And this is on UNIX! It probably is not much harder on windows, but it is harder to get directions.) Your links explain that even after you succeed in installing it on windows, it still will not work without minor changes.

Your @INC data suggests that you are not using windows. In that case, I would recommend you follow the installation notes in the modules own documentation.
No one can give you detail step-by-step directions. The details depend not only on your OS, but on what tools you have installed and what prerequisites you may have installed already.
I doubt that you will succeed until you have a basic understanding of perl's build system (and possibly the UNIX 'make' utility).
The book "Intermediate Perl" has a Chapter "Creating Your Own Distribution". This could be a big help in understanding the files in your distribution and how they are used in the installation process. Be aware that this is heavily biased toward the UNIX user and it omits all mention of XS.
