configure error: configure: error: cannot execute: /usr/local/bin/arm-apple-darwin-ld
Hello all, I've been struggling (and learning a lot) installing the toolchain on my Ubuntu 8.04.

I was seeing the light at the end of the tunnel when I ran into this message:
configure: error: cannot execute: /usr/local/bin/arm-apple-darwin-ld: check --with-ld or env. var. DEFAULT_LINKER
make: *** [configure-gcc] Error 1

Is this a deal breaker or is it something I can fix?

I received the above error while following the directions from

Specifically, this section (see bold)
# Configure and make LLVM-GCC. Make sure that $LLVMOBJDIR and $HEAVENLY are set per the instructions above.

$ mkdir -p build/llvm-gcc-4.0-iphone
$ pushd build/llvm-gcc-4.0-iphone
$ ../../llvm-gcc-4.0-iphone/configure --enable-llvm=`llvm-config --obj-root` \
--enable-languages=c,c++,objc,obj-c++ --target=arm-apple-darwin --enable-sjlj-exceptions \
--with-heavenly=$HEAVENLY --with-as=/usr/local/bin/arm-apple-darwin-as \
--with-ld=/usr/local/bin/arm-apple-darwin-ld --enable-wchar_t=no
$ make LLVM_VERSION_INFO=2.0-svn-iphone-dev-0.3-svn
$ sudo make install

One additional note I should mention is that I've installed (iphone_sdk_for_iphone_os_2.1__final) - iPhoneSDKHeadersAndLibs.pkg and NOT the MacOSX10.4.Universal.pkg as per the directions from ( I ran into some extraction issues and came across the information found here ( - thanks gojohnnyboi)
