I am installing perl 5.8.8 on my AIX machine and the error is attached. Looks like its complaining abt the C compiler. I have the following installed
vac.C                      6.0.0.0  COMMITTED  C for AIX Compiler
xlC.aix50.rte             10.1.0.2  COMMITTED  XL C/C++ Runtime for AIX 5.3
xlC.cpp                    9.0.0.0  COMMITTED  C for AIX Preprocessor
xlC.rte                   10.1.0.2  COMMITTED  XL C/C++ Runtime

I have also exported the following to my path
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/vac/bin
export CC=/usr/vac/bin/cc_r

So where can be the problem.


./Configure -d -Dcc=vac -Duseshrplib -Dusethreads -Duse64bitall -Dprefix=/usr/opt/perl5_64
(I see you are using the Korn shell.  Some ksh's blow up on Configure,
mainly on older exotic systems.  If yours does, try the Bourne shell instead.)

Beginning of configuration questions for perl5.

Checking echo to see how to suppress newlines...

The star should be here-->*

First let's make sure your kit is complete.  Checking...
Looks good...


Would you like to see the instructions? [n]

Locating common programs...
awk is in /usr/bin/awk.
cat is in /usr/bin/cat.
chmod is in /usr/bin/chmod.
comm is in /usr/bin/comm.
cp is in /usr/bin/cp.
echo is in /usr/bin/echo.
expr is in /usr/bin/expr.
grep is in /usr/bin/grep.
ls is in /usr/bin/ls.
mkdir is in /usr/bin/mkdir.
rm is in /usr/bin/rm.
sed is in /usr/bin/sed.
sort is in /usr/bin/sort.
touch is in /usr/bin/touch.
tr is in /usr/bin/tr.
uniq is in /usr/bin/uniq.

Don't worry if any of the following aren't found...
I don't see Mcc out there, offhand.
ar is in /usr/bin/ar.
I don't see bison out there, either.
I don't see byacc out there, either.
cpp is in /usr/bin/cpp.
csh is in /usr/bin/csh.
date is in /usr/bin/date.
egrep is in /usr/bin/egrep.
I don't see gmake out there, either.
gzip is in /usr/bin/gzip.
less is in /usr/bin/less.
ln is in /usr/bin/ln.
make is in /usr/bin/make.
more is in /usr/bin/more.
nm is in /usr/bin/nm.
nroff is in /usr/bin/nroff.
pg is in /usr/bin/pg.
test is in /usr/bin/test.
uname is in /usr/bin/uname.
I don't see zip out there, either.
Using the test built into your sh.

Checking compatibility between /usr/bin/echo and builtin echo (if any)...
They are compatible.  In fact, they may be identical.

Symbolic links are supported.

Checking how to test for symbolic links...
You can test for symbolic links with 'test -h'.


Good, your tr supports [:lower:] and [:upper:] to convert case.
Using [:upper:] and [:lower:] to convert case.
./Configure[3016]: vac:  not found
You need to find a working C compiler.
Either (purchase and) install the C compiler supplied by your OS vendor,
or for a free C compiler try http://gcc.gnu.org/
I cannot continue any further, aborting.

-Dcc=vac

What should this be good for? There is no "vac" executable. Omit it.

Thanks Looks like its working, I thought -Dcc will specify what compiler to use.

Yes, but it specifies the compiler executable, not an abstract description or name of the compiler model.

CC=/usr/vac/bin/cc_r is quite sufficient to tell configure/make which compiler executable to use.
