Sorry about the late Summary.

Thanks to Scott W. Adkins. His answer solved my problem. Here is his
suggestion to me:

The key is to use /usr/local/bin in the path *BEFORE* /usr/ccs/bin.

I also tried the majority suggestion to download the LWPerl pkg from And it works painless as well.

For using sybperl, the pre-compiled package does not work with it though.
Perl will have to rebuild to make it work.

Many thanks to the following people:

Here is the original question:
To All Helpers:

The platform is Solaris 2.6

Gcc info:
# pkginfo -l | grep gcc

I run sh Configure -Dcc=gcc to compile the Perl and configure and make
depentent run fine, but make failed.

Any help will be appreciated. I have checked the archive and have not
found any related tip yet.
