Are you using the perl binary that ships with Solaris?

If yes, then that binary was built with Sun's cc, not gcc, and so the  
compiler directives that are included in perl's file are  

It is possible to change these to work with gcc, though I don't  
remember the details (and I don't have a Solaris host available to  
play around with this).

Alternatively, you can build an ad-hoc binary of perl from scratch  
with gcc, or even download a pre-built binary from sunfreeware.
