We are trying to put a code from X86 machine to a SPARC based machine. Would that work without any issues ? Or I have to do any configurations further ?

Depends a little on your nature of your Perl program, but unless you are doing any sparc specific operations, your Perl script should run exactly the same on a solaris x86 system.

SPARC was Suns hardware architecture, x86 is Intels hardware architecture (mainly the CPU). Unless you are writing low level code in a scripting language (not sure if this is possible with PERL) it should not matter what you write.

Unless you are using Inline or another way to access low-level code, it shouldn't matter.  At worst, you may need to recompile any perl modules that have compiled components (usually found in /usr/local/lib/perl5/*/<arch_dir> where arch_dir is something specific to the hardware (i686-cygwin for cygwin running under windows, sun4-solaris for Solaris SPARC, i86pc-solaris for Solarix x86, etc).

Perl version should be same as its on x86 on sparc. 99.9% ist should work if your program is not H/W dependant.
