Yup - windows.  Ok, sorted......

Crypt::SSLeay wouldn't install.
Initially because there was no SSL Library (standard on Linux ???).
Then, even with OpenSSL installed (a couple of attempts to ensure I used a
"developer" distro), CPAN didn't build it properly because it missed off the
include directory.  I couldn't see what/where was specifying such things but
did find some manual instructions to get Crypt::SSLeay to install such that
gnc-fq-update was happy that it was present and didn't try to install it.  A
bit of faffing.
