gcc error while compiling gawk

I'm getting an error while compiling gawk:
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot create executables.
I tried with gcc 2.95, 3.0 and 3.2.
Does anyone know something about this?

Create a very, very simple program, something like
#include <stdio.h>

int main(void) {
     printf("Hello world!");
     return 0;
And try to compile it:
gcc progname

Thanks for your reply mara, but it works again.
(haven't changed anything in the meantime ).
btw, it did compile fine untill I got to the gawk compile (made a very very simpel program too ).
Then it was checking if gcc -s works and then I got that error.
Anyways, thanks for the input
