Why is that? You can download both sources and debugging symbols for
each ActivePerl release. E.g. for 5.8.8.822:

http://downloads.activestate.com/Act...822_source.zip

http://downloads.activestate.com/Act...52-symbols.zip

The symbols.zip file should be unpacked in the C:\Perl directory, or
wherever you installed ActivePerl as it contains .pdb file for both the
bin and the lib subtree. All symbols should then automatically fall
into the correct places.
