perl Makefile.PL LIB=/home/jlulchen/perl-lib
(there may be errors when doing make install, but the files will
still get copied to the right place).
THen you need to add
use lib '/home/jlulchen/perl-lib';
use lib '/home/jlulchen/perl-lib/auto/sun4-solaris';
to your scripts so that they tell perl to look in those directories
to get the libraries.

gcc works fine.
