Unfortunately you will have to rebuild perl with gcc before you can
The Makefile.PL script relies on information that is stored
in Config.pm (and maybe other places), and a lot of that information
is how to use the C compiler (ie what switches it requires, etc).
It may be possible to edit the various Makefiles (CTlib/Makefile,
DBlib/Makefile) to set the compiler name and flags correctly, but
you're likely to run into various configuration problems.
