perl (why 64int on 32int machine)

I just downloaded and tried to build and install Perl's Database
Interface, DBI (yes the hard way, using Marefile.PL).

Configure completed fine, but make fails with:
" make
-fno-strict-aliasing -pipe -fstack-protector -DUSEIMPORTLIB -O3
-DVERSION=\"1.623\"  -DXS_VERSION=\"1.623\"
"-I/usr/lib/perl5/5.14/i686-cygwin-threads-64int/CORE"  -W -Wall
-Wpointer-arith -Wbad-function-cast -Wno-comment -Wno-sign-compare
-Wno-cast-qual -Wmissing-noreturn -Wno-unused-parameter Perl.c
/bin/sh: gcc-4: command not found
Makefile:625: recipe for target `Perl.o' failed"

The above also mentions
which I do have on my system.  I did not select it and I don't have a
64 bit system.
Would this indicate a setup ini problem for perl?

Erroneously its using "gcc-4" for the compiler which wont be found.
Just mentioning this for those interested.  Though I shouldnt have had
 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.14/i686-cygwin-threads-64int et al
