You can download DB_File for Windows from www.activestate.com/packages/, 
there's also a *.ppd file, AFAIK.

You can also uncompress it (twice: first the ZIP, then the included tar), 
put it into your Perlfect installation directory, and add something like

push(@INC, "d:/www/yourwebroot/perlfect/search/DB_File");
push(@INC, "d:/www/yourwebroot/perlfect/search/DB_File/blib");
push(@INC, "d:/www/yourwebroot/perlfect/search/DB_File/lib");
push(@INC, "d:/www/yourwebroot/perlfect/search/DB_File/arch");

somewhere at the top of both search.pl and indexer.pl. Put more generally: 
This is also the way to install DB_File if you don't have any access 
(except ftp) to the hosting machine.
