Nmake should do. For extension modules (i.e. C), it is recommended that you use
the same compiler as for the perl build (indeed, other combinations are almost
impossible). AFAIK, ActiveState builds with VC - thus VC/nmake is o.k.
(Personally, I use the ancient Borland C++ 5.5 with dmake.)

BTW: You find 'your' make with

   perl -MConfig -e "print $Config{make}"
