bleedperl on IRIX 6.4

bleedperl on IRIX 6.4
Message ID:
I tried compiling bleedperl on an IRIX 6.4 system I've access to,
but it quickly fails during Configure.

The problem seems to be the C compiler (/usr/bin/cc). It doesn't recognize
-version, causing hints/ to hang. After changing the `cc -version`
expressions in hints/ to "foo", it gets passed the hints file,
but it hangs after 

    Use which C compiler? [cc -n32]  

probably in UU/checkcc. UU/checkcc compiles a file try.c by doing

    cc -o try -D_BSD_TYPES -D_BSD_TIME -woff 1009,1110,1174,1184,1552 -OPT:Olimit=0 try

The file try isn't generated, nor do I see any error messages.

When running the command from the command line, it issues a warning:

    cc: Warning: -OPT options are ignored

but it compiles the program.

Unfortunally, I hardly know anything about IRIX, and nothing about its C
compiler (the man page is unfortunally not installed). I can't even get
the version of the compiler, none of -v, -V, -version, --version, -h, --help
or -? is recognized, and a strings on the binary doesn't give any hints on
the version (just that is was compiled for IRIX 6.2).
