Compiling perl using gcc 3.3.2 on AIX

I am trying to compile perl source (5.8.7) using GCC .But after the .Configure step as I run make command , I get a error that miniperl-gcc-3.3.2': No such file or directory" or it says gcc -b option should come at the start.If anybody has a solution to this help me.

I am tryng to compile Perl 5.8.7 on AIX 5.3 .Since I don't have C compilers supplied with AIX , I am using GCC 3.3.2 .
After running the "sh Configure -Dcc=gcc -Dprefix=/usr/local/perl" . When I run "make" I get the following error

gcc -b miniperl -Wl,-brtl -Wl,-bdynamic -Wl,-bmaxdata:0x80000000 -Wl,-b32 -o miniperl -Wl,-brtl -Wl,-bdynamic -Wl,-bmaxdata:0x80000000 -Wl,-b32 \

http://perldoc.perl.org/perlaix.html...-Perl-5-on-AIX says
At the moment of writing, AIX supports two different native C compilers, for which you have to pay: xlC and vac. If you decide to use either of these two (which is quite a lot easier than using gcc)
Just in case you had a copy of vac or xlC kicking around...
I'm not too sharp with these things... I hope this helps... Let me know.

I had read that document . But the problem is I am restricted to use only gcc.
