R/dcf.pm is indeed a Perl module.
You have ignored the instructions (readme.packages, INSTALL) which say:
The Windows port of perl5, available via
Cygwin is a completely different port of Perl, and as you can see, it is
not interpreting Windows paths correctly.
Note that you seem also to have ignored
BEWARE: Don't expect this to work if the path to R_HOME contains spaces.
although on some older versions of Windows you may be able to get away
We could explicitly say that the Cygwin port of Perl does not work, but
there would be no point in putting that in instructions that people don't
bother to read, would there?
