Well at least that gcc is compiled for Solaris7.

That perl was compiled with gcc-2.8.1 - which is a nice "mature" gcc
I think it is what I use myself at work on the Solaris machines.
(The Sun I have here at home has egcs-1.1.2 version of gcc, as does this
linux machine.)

Given that you new gcc is playing up I would not replace it either.

I am (fairly) sure that combining gcc-2.8.1 and SunPro cc will work fine.
I am sure that an all SunPro built perl/Tk works, and that an all gcc-2.8.1
perl/Tk works.

If it was my system I would find gcc-2.8.1 and install that - I would 
install from source but there are probably binaries somewhere.

I will try building gcc-2.95.2 and perl when I get to work tomorrow
(other issues permitting). (Work policy prohibits downloading binaries
though - so I can't just grab same gcc you did.)
