Thank you Blair but now I have one more problem.I
installed active state perl and set the path as


(for gcc)    (for new perl5.8)  (for make)

However I am getting this error

checking for shared library extension... so
checking for the C compiler perl wants to use to build
its modules... ./configure: test: unknown operator
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target
Current working directory /test/orca-0.27/packages
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all'

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
