perl Install Error

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.)

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

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.

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.

-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.
