Thank you all for your thoughts and ideas. 
I asked

Installing MIME-Base64-2.20 on solaris 9 

attempted install was as follows.... 

# perl Makefile.PL 
Writing Makefile for MIME::Base64 
# make 
cc -c  -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -xO3 -xdepend   -
20\" -DXS_VERSION=\"2.20\" -KPIC -I/usr/perl5/5.6.1/lib/sun4-solaris-
cc: unrecognized option `-KPIC' 
cc: language depend not recognized 
cc: Base64.c: linker input file unused because linking not done 
Running Mkbootstrap for MIME::Base64 () 
chmod 644 
rm -f blib/arch/auto/MIME/Base64/ 
LD_RUN_PATH="" cc  -G Base64.o  -o blib/arch/auto/MIME/Base64/ 
cc: Base64.o: No such file or directory 
cc: no input files 
make: *** [blib/arch/auto/MIME/Base64/] Error 1 

Working on this with another co-worker and he has read that others have had 
this issue. We had 1 of three options. The easiest option was to install 
perl from sunfreeware and we done that but cant get the new version to be 

install of perl-5.8.3-sol9-sparc-local went smooth. When we do perl -v we 
see this 

This is perl, v5.6.1 built for sun4-solaris-64int 

When I upgraded perl on my FreeBSD machine I used somthing like 
perl.use port 

and that made the new version the current working version. 

and found that I Had to install newer verstion of perl. After install needed 
to symlink /usr/bin to /usr/local/bin and 
cp /usr/local/bin/perl.5.8.x /usr/bin/perl
