install perl/gcc on Solaris 2.5
Posted on 1997-07-18
I need some help installing perl 5.
When trying to install perl I discovered that there is no C compiler in Solaris 2.5. There is a script called cc which looks for the link /usr/ccs/bin/ucbcc to the C compiler (which does not exist). So the perl install complains that cc does not seem to be working.
I downloaded a copy of gcc-126.96.36.199.
Configure runs ok and ends with 'Links are now set up to build a native compiler for sparc-sun-solaris2.5.
I then try make LANGUAGES=c but this fails with:
make: Fatal Error: command failed for target cccp.o.
There is no cccp.o in the gcc directory only cccp.1 and cccp.c.
I have no knowledge of C compilers whatsoever so will require some basic instruction. All I really want is the simplest way to successfully install perl.
Any help will be appreciated....
