If you really want to try dev releases, I'd rather recommend to 'svn co' ;)
Some of the dependencies are surely tricky, but Jifty itself is pure perl.
So, after you installed the deps from ppm, grab nmake from Microsoft's
and 'svn up && perl Makefile.PL && nmake install' whenever you want.

Not only 'install_share' without share dir, but lack of license, abstract,
tests, sometimes version among the others. In the short term, it doesn't
matter, but in the long run, ppm-installed incomplete plugins might be
a cause of annoyance. (ppm might say 'already been installed' later, when
the official releases with same version number are available.)
