Unfortunately, this means Perl modules that only come in native (XS)
form don't compile because perl -V:cc says "gcc-4". I tried creating
a symlink from gcc-4 -> gcc in /bin, but it didn't help.
Yes, I've posted about this some time ago. You absolutely need to name
the symlink "gcc-4.exe".
This is not my experience. My link is called 'gcc-4' pointing to 'gcc';
there is no '.exe' extension in either source or destination. This gets
XS modules compiling for me.
