Installing perl modules manually

I am trying to install a perl module using a tar file and am having trouble doing so. I see that on the system there are two version of perl installed.

PHP Code:
/usr/bin/perl -v
 
/usr/perl5/5.6.1/lib/sun4-solaris-64int
    
/usr/perl5/5.6.1/lib
    
/usr/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/sun4-solaris-64int
    
/usr/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1
    
/usr/perl5/site_perl
    
/usr/perl5/vendor_perl/5.6.1/sun4-solaris-64int
    
/usr/perl5/vendor_perl/5.6.1
    
/usr/perl5/vendor_perl 
and the libraries that I want to use:

PHP Code:
 /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.5/sun4-solaris
    
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.5
    
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/sun4-solaris
    
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5
    
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl 
If I perform a:

PHP Code:
perl Makefile.PL LIB=/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.5 INSTALLMAN1DIR=/home/local/perl/Data_Dumper/man/man1 INSTALLMAN3DIR=/home/local/perl/Data_Dumper/man/man3 INSTALLBIN=/usr/local/bin 
INSTALLSCRIPT
=/home/scripts/Data_Dumper 
and then when I run a make, I get this error which is using the wrong libraries:

PHP Code:
make
cc 
-c  -D_LARGEFILE_SOURCE -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 -xO3 -xdepend   -DVERSION="2.121\" -DXS_VERSION=\"2.121\" -KPIC -I/usr/perl5/5.6.1/lib/sun4-solaris-64int/CORE  Dumper.c
make: cc: Command not found
make: *** [Dumper.o] Error 127 
My question is how can I tell this Makefile to use these libraries:

PHP Code:
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.5/sun4-solaris
    
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.5
    
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/sun4-solaris
    
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5
    
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl 
and to use the correct c libraries(find them first)

and to use these directories for the rest:

PHP Code:
INSTALLMAN1DIR=/home/local/perl/Data_Dumper/man/man1 INSTALLMAN3DIR=/home/local/perl/Data_Dumper/man/man3 
INSTALLBIN
=/usr/local/bin 
INSTALLSCRIPT
=/home/scripts/Data_Dumper
