configure error

    ./configure --with-tcl=/usr/local/src/ActiveTcl-8.4/lib/tcl8.4  --with-tclinclude=/usr/local/src/ActiveTcl-8.4/include --enable-gcc

    How could I get around this compiler error?

      Can you compile with /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc ? It doesn't seem to work. but I don't know why configure script use Sun compiler when gcc is specified.
