Red face cannot compute suffix of object files


2 everyone!
I am cross_developing the embedded system:
- target: ARM
- workstation: Ubuntu11.4
I already install bootstrap compiler in directory $PREFIX/bin. and I also already add this directory to $PATH.
when I build glibc using the following commands:
CC=arm-linux-gcc ../glibc-2.15/configure --prefix="/usr"
it appear the following error:
...
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for gcc... arm-linux-gcc
checking for suffix of object files... configure: error: in `/home/hung/control-project/build-tools/build-glibc':
configure: error: cannot compute suffix of object files: cannot compile
See `config.log' for more details


pleased to help me solve this problem!
thank in advance!

As per the GCC FAQ, that's a pretty catch-all error. What you should try to do is look in config.log for the last reported error. It could be getting caused by a variety of issues - missing dependency headers, wrong version of a dependency, wrong ld, gcc, g++, etc.

I looked file config.log and seen the following error:
....
configure:3108: $? = 0
configure:3122: gcc -E conftest.c
conftest.c:9:28: fatal error: ac_nonexistent.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
configure:3122: $? = 1

....
--------------------------
I donīt know this error.
Pleased to show me why and means to solve it.
thanks in advance!

That particular one isn't a problem. It is part of a test that checks for a non-existant header. In other words, getting a "fatal error" there is a test PASS.
