Summary: Need to modify Config.pm and Config_heavy.pm to get
builds to work
I tried to install a Perl module IO::Pty that was unavailable in the dublin
distro and was unable to compile anything.
First I had to modify /opt/csw/lib/perl/5.10.1/Config.pm to point to the
gcc compiler instead of the one supplied by SunOS.
When trying to install again, CPAN complained that it could not run
/opt/csw/gcc4/bin/gcc although I could run it fine from a shell
command-line. Inspecting the compile.log file under the build directory
for IO::Tty (the module it was attempting to build as a prerequisite to
IO::Pty) revealed that gcc could not cope with an argument -norunpath.
There are many others that the Sun version of the C/C++ compiler and ld
will work with but gcc will not.
I am attaching both my modified Config.pm and Config_heavy.pl that allowed
installs requiring compiler runs to proceed successfully.
I believe that this issue applies equally to CPAN and CPANPLUS.
