Weird. fairywren has it, which means that it must have been removed from
the packages at some stage, fairly recently as fairywren isn't that old.
I just confirmed the absence on a 100% fresh install.

It is in Strawberry's c/bin directory.

build --with-perl.

jacana seems to have it.

If you prep a patch I'll test it.
