gcc for perl source distribution

 gcc for perl source distribution

        could somebody tell me about prerequisites needed to compile
perl-5.6.1 on Solaris 8 successfully?

I got gcc-3.0.1.pkg and installed it.
After gunzip of the perl distribution, I read carefully the INSTALL,
and README files and did the Configure.
But finally, the make broke at the very beginning with following basic

hera2{root}446: make
make: Warning: Both `makefile' and `Makefile' exist
`sh  cflags libperl.a miniperlmain.o`  miniperlmain.c
          CCCMD =  gcc -B/usr/ccs/bin/ -DPERL_CORE -c -D_REENTRANT -fno-strict-aliasing -I/usr/local/include -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -O
`sh  cflags libperl.a perl.o`  perl.c
          CCCMD =  gcc -B/usr/ccs/bin/ -DPERL_CORE -c -D_REENTRANT -fno-strict-aliasing -I/usr/local/include -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -O

/usr/ccs/bin/as: "/var/tmp/ccPyF1Dd.s", line 5117: error: unknown opcode ".previous"
/usr/ccs/bin/as: "/var/tmp/ccPyF1Dd.s", line 5117: error: statement syntax
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `perl.o'

The only idea I have is, that gcc may need the binutils package
instead of /usr/ccs/bin/as?
Particular hints for PATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH?

I'd appreciate any hints resolving that installation problem.
Thank you very much in advance
