a fast trick is to search in Makefile generated after
perl Makefile.PL, and to replace the switches which
are generated for Sun's C compiler with the ones for
Gnu C compiler(I suppose you are using Gnu C). It will
be the -xO3 replaced with -O, and -KIPC replaced with

There is another solution to notify perl that you are
using Gnu C, and to generate the correct Makefile,
could be setting CC=gcc, or setting some perl
variable, but don't remember exactly.
