Thanks rinceWind. I get the same result when attempting to install by hand.

root@blah [/.cpan/build/Data-Dumper-2.121]> perlgcc Makefile.PL Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Writing Makefile for Data::Dumper root@blah [/.cpan/build/Data-Dumper-2.121]> make make: Fatal error: Don't know how to make target `/usr/perl5/5.6.1/lib +/sun4-solaris-64intConfig.pm'

It would appear that something rather odd is going on when using perlgcc as I cannot install pure Perl modules either. I attempted a manual install of Config::Tiny just to test it out. I get the same error.

root@blah [/opt/installs/Config-Tiny-2.08]> perlgcc Makefile.PL Checking if your kit is complete... Looks good Writing Makefile for Config::Tiny root@blah [/opt/installs/Config-Tiny-2.08]> make make: Fatal error: Don't know how to make target `/usr/perl5/5.6.1/lib +/sun4-solaris-64intConfig.pm'

So, I've since learned that we do have Sun's cc compiler, we just didn't have it installed. So, the powers that be are installing it as we speak. That should solve my problem. Since kinda curious as to why perlgcc didn't work but I think that's a research project for another day :-)

Many thanks for taking the time to give me a hand.

    Although you will be solving your problem by migrating to Forte cc, please raise a bug report on RT, as the chances of the author lurking on Perlmonks are quite small.

    As the problem seems to be with the generated Makefile under perlgcc, you might want to investigate further by saving the Makefile to one side, running perl Makefile.PL and looking at the differences between the Makefiles. I suggest trying this with a pure perl module.
