Perl knows which C compiler was use to build and tries to use that for
building any new modules.
The version of perl shipped with Solaris 8 is built with Sun's cc and if
you don't have it then you get this error message when trying to add new

A simple workaround is to get perl from http://www.sunfreeware.com/ which
is built with gcc, also available from sunfreeware.  Then use that version
of perl to build Orca.
