I've had some success with PAR <http://par.perl.org>. It's still not
rock stable but it's an ambitious project with the right kind of goals
and the right kind of backing, so it looks like a good path to try.

The short of it is take your perl, install PAR on it, then do

     pp --gui -o PROGRAM.EXE script.pl

(Note that you (a) only need to install PAR on your own machine and (b)
don't need a compiler.)
