Your perl installation is broken.

Config.pm (which holds the details of how your copy of perl was
built) should be in 

/usr/local/lib/perl5/sun4-solaris/5.00403/Config.pm.

I would guess that you installed a pre-compiled perl binary, and that
somehow a piece of that did not get installed correctly.

The easiest way around that is to grab perl5.004_04 from www.perl.com,
configure and build it your self (should take about 30 minutes).

You can build perl like this:

cd perl5.00404
./Configure -des
[ if you want to use gcc, add -Dcc=gcc ]
make
make test
make install
