[Orca-users] Re: picking up the right C compiler

When you type "perl Makefile.PL" it uses by default the same compiler
that was used to compile Perl, which was probably cc.

You can type

perl -V

and look for the string "cc=".  For my Perl it shows "cc=gcc".

You may be able to change this by doing something like

env CC=gcc ./configure .....

env CC=gcc make

when configuring and compiling Orca and its sub packages.  If you
are unhappy about this, you can also recompile Perl itself with gcc.
