Looks like your build is mixing gcc and Sun's compiler.

'gcc -KPIC' is not valid for gcc so my guess is that your Perl was built with
Solaris' compiler, and the P4 API is built with gcc. I don't think that
combination will work.
If that's the case, your best bet is to rebuild your Perl with gcc and then
you'll be able to compile P4Perl.
