Hello I am trying to install a few modules I downloaded from CPAN but
I keep getting errors from "make". I upgraded to perl 5.8.5 this
seemed to go fine. The Makefile.PL file seems to work but when I run
"make' I get these errors:
gcc -B/usr/ccs/bin/ -c   -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe
-I/usr/local/include -O   -DVERSION=\"2.10\" -DXS_VERSION=\"2.10\"
-fPIC "-I/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.5/sun4-solaris/CORE"   SHA1.c
cc1: Invalid option `-fno-strict-aliasing'
make: *** [SHA1.o] Error 1

I am running Solaris and GNU make 3.80 [I upgraded this too].
Has anyone seen this error, please let me know what I might be
missing. It also seems to me that maybe my gcc does not understand
I have tried several modules [Digest::SHA1, HTML::Parser] with all
very much the same error. Any clues would be helpful.

You're running an old version of GNU gcc which does not
support this option. Either get rid of the option or
upgrade the compiler.

" both of which are terrible sins in
   modern society. Would-be industrial societies that have done a poor
   job of subordinating personal or local loyalties to loyalty to the
   system are usually very inefficient. (Look at Latin America.) Thus an
   advanced industrial society can tolerate only those small-scale
   communities that are emasculated, tamed and made into tools of the
   system. [7]
   53. Crowding, rapid change and the breakdown of communities have been
   widely recognized as sources of social problems. but we do not believe
   they are enough to account for the extent of the problems that are
   seen today.
   54. A few pre-industrial cities were very large and crowded, yet their
   inhabitants do not seem to have suffered from psychological problems
   to the same extent as modern man. In America today there still are
   uncrowded rural areas, and we find there the same problems as in urban
   areas, though the problems tend to be less acute in the rural areas.
   Thus crowding does not seem to be the decisive factor.
   55. On the growing edge of the American frontier during the 19th
   century, the mobility of the population probably broke down extended
   families and small-scale social groups to at least the same extent as
   these are broken down today. In fact, many nuclear families lived by
   choice in such isolation, having no neighbors within several miles,
   that they belonged to no community at all, yet they do not seem to
   have developed problems as a result.
   56.Furthermore, change in American frontier society was very rapid and
   deep. A man might be born and raised in a log cabin, outside the reach
   of law and order and fed large

of freedom. There has been
   a consistent tendency, going back at least to the Industrial
   Revolution for technology to strengthen the system at a high cost in
   individual freedom and local autonomy. Hence any change designed to
   protect freedom from technology would be contrary to a fundamental
   trend in the development of our society.
   Consequently, such a change either would be a transitory one -- soon
   swamped by the tide of history -- or, if large enough to be permanent
   would alter the nature of our whole society. This by the first and
   second principles. Moreover, since society would be altered in a way
   that could not be predicted in advance (third principle) there would
   be great risk. Changes large enough to make a lasting difference in
   favor of freedom would not be initiated because it would realized that
   they would gravely disrupt the system. So any attempts at reform would
   be too timid to be effective. Even if changes large enough to make a
   lasting difference were initiated, they would be retracted when their
   disruptive effects became apparent. Thus, permanent changes in favor
   of freedom could be brought about only by persons prepared to accept
   radical, dangerous and unpredictable alteration of the entire system.
   In other words, by revolutionaries, not reformers.
   112. People anxious to rescue freedom without sacrificing the supposed
   benefits of technology will suggest naive schemes for some new form of
   society that would reconcile freedom with technology. Apart from the
   fact that peo
