I was looking at pg2pdb, while pl2bat generates a "pg2pdb.bat".
BUT... that doesn't have the correct perl either. Don't know why yet.

Maybe because it finds a perl in the PATH, and uses that one.
But I have to double check this.

Yes, too messy. But your test script has to invoke bin\pg2pdb.bat,
so if it's MSWin32 you have to append a ".bat".
Maybe there's something in %Config for this?
