That's actually according to design. Your perl was compiled using
"cc". Using something else might render the whole gimp unusable (it
certainly does so in hp-ux). The problem is that gimp-perl is loaded by
your _perl_ interpreter, and must be link-compatible to it, not to the
gimp (actually, it's not that clear, but linking to shared objects is
generally easier than dynamically loading objects).

Then your only chance is praying that gcc is "compatible enough" (it might
be on solaris), or use --disable-perl.

The right solution, of course, would be ot not compile your perl with suns
compiler in the first place: You won't be able to install ANY perl module
if cc isn't available later.

It is!
