Distributing a Perl Script on Win32

 Distributing a Perl Script on Win32

        What's the best way to distribute a Perl script (on
Win32) to several users who will not have Perl on their machine?  
        The script would probably make heavy use of CPAN modules
(e.g. DBI & Tk).  I'd like to avoid the hassle of having to install
Perl, install the various modules (along with updating them if need be
in the future).  Ideally, I'd like to give out a simple executable;
barring that a simple installation that automatically puts all the
Perl pieces where they need to go, checks a CPAN archive for updates,
etc. would work too.
        I heard a little about 'B', which would let me compile the Perl
code down to C, which I could then compile in a binary, but from what
I understand it's still in development.
        Any suggestions would be appreciated.
