      Maaaybe, but as I understand things, it's the fault of pl2bat. If that is fixed, Strawberry will just pick up the fix automatically.

      No. Lacking proof (by which I mean code) that the LIB/INC params passed to Makefile.PLs is wrong and can be removed, it stays.

      The Makefile.PL authors should be handling INC and LIB from @ARGV.
