Apache / gcc errors


I've got a clean install of Debian and used apt-get to install gcc-3.0 (acutally 3.0.4). The problem is that when I try to configure Apache, I get the following error...

checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
check 'config.log' for details
configure failed for srclib/apr

I've searched google, but can't seem to find a solution for this. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

well if you do infact say its installed, then try to compile the following code :
(also double check if it installed correctly by typing gcc -v)
if you get command not found, then it did not obviously install correctly ...


Code:
#include <stdio.h>
int main( void )
{
  printf("\nHello, world!\n");
  return 0;
}
save the file as test.c and then type
gcc test.c -o test


one more thing to check is to see if you have an executable called gcc in /usr/bin ... well its actually a symlink to the compiler ...

if that does not exist then symlink it to the compiler (for example mine is called gcc-3.2.3) so if i were to make a symlink i would type :
ln -s gcc-3.2.3 gcc
(that is if i was in /usr/bin, otherwise type full commands)
yours will probably be called gcc-3.0.4 since you say thats the version ...

and to see right away what you have going on you can type something like :
which gcc
which should output /usr/bin/gcc
or just use ls by typing :
ls -alc /usr/bin/gcc*

i am just starting to ramble on here, so hopefully this leads you in the right direction ..

gcc -v returns a bunch of config info...

I already added the symbolic link, and...

which gcc returns /usr/bin/gcc

I appreciate the help, hopefully you have more suggestions

the other thing is, make sure you have the package
glibc
installed, otherwise this could cause this error ..

When I try to compile the following statement, I get a bunch of errors from stdio.h and the output is not being generated to the test file.

# gcc test.c -o test

Note, the "__THROW" error occurs numerous times...

/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-linux/3.0.4/include/stdio.h: 469: parse error before "__THROW"
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-linux/3.0.4/include/stdio.h: 504: parse error before "fpos_t"
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-linux/3.0.4/include/stdio.h: 507: parse error before '*' to ken
