  • CC=gcc ? How strange. Do you mean they have reinstalled a perl over the Solaris-provided one ? What does perl -V:cc say ?

      Last I checked, Solaris (version 7, I think, and possibly 8), needed me to do a lot of CC=gcc LD=gcc stuff to compile XS modules, but that was because I hadn't installed Sun's compiler. On some systems we made the changes directly to the Config.pm module and it worked.

      However, I've left off [perl.org] trying to interfere with the system Perl on any machine. Even on my LFS [linuxfromscratch.org] machines there's a Perl compiled when installing the system in /usr/bin, but the Perl I use for programming and installing modules with is in /usr/local/perl561 with symlinks into /usr/local/bin, and all my programs are directly wired for #!/usr/local/bin/perl5.6.1 . I'm expecting a relatively painless transition to 5.8.

      • You remember me this (unanswered) post [develooper.com] by Alan Burlison (Sun's Perl guy).
        • I hacked Config.pm in MacPerl to return different values based on the binary. Config.pm can have a hash called %preconfig which will allow overrides. MacPerl's looks sorta like:

          {
                  local $^W;
                  my $inst = ($ENV{MACPERL} || "") . "site_perl:";
                  my $arch = $MacPerl::Architecture || "";
                  my $cc   = $MacPerl::Compiler || "";
           
                  %preconfig = (
