For both of those the Perl being detected in "/usr/bin/perl", not
"/opt/csw/bin/perl", and it's asking for a compiler just called "cc",
which is missing one of the systems, and I suspect it goes to the
wrong compiler on the other. Given that "/usr/bin/perl" doesn't seem
to be set up for compiling XS extensions, is there any way of put
"/opt/csw/bin" first in the path for the automatic builds, or to
explicitly set PERL=/opt/csw/bin/perl when configure is run?
