installing cc without root access
I am in a server that didn't installed cc compiler, and I need to install some perl module that needed to be compiled. I checked gcc download page and that itself needs a cc to compile. I running around the loops here. I know cc may install using root to add from Solaris optional package, but I am not root. Am I able to to install the cc compiler without root access to the server?
Help me, help you, help others...

Re: installing cc without root access
You should be able to just download and install anything you want in your own home directory. With no compiler, you'll have to find pre-compiled binaries (and since it's not your system, statically linked ones would be best so you don't have to worry about library versions of things cc may need). I don't know where you'd get statically-linked cc binaries, but you may be able to Google for them successfully. I'd suggest installing any binaries in ~/bin, and adding that to the end of your path. Then you should be able to compile whatever you need.
