Which Perl are you using?  Do you have gcc installed?

It looks like you have a version of Perl that may not be Sun's,
but you don't have the compiler your Perl was compiled with on
the system.


% /usr/local/bin/perl -MConfig -wle 'print $Config{cc}'

and make sure this compiler is on your system.

BTW, I would recommend installing either the ActiveState binary Perl
or the sunfreeware.com one before doing this.  The Sun Perl assumes
you have Sun's cc around, which most people don't.  These other
two Perl's use gcc, so the RRDtool compiles just fine.
