checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no

Did you select the development package in install? If not, you don't have the compilers. Use add/remove applications and pop in the install CDs to install the development package.

I wonder why did you post this question under this thread...
What distribution are you using?
Try this to locate your C compiler:

$ find / -name "*cc*"

You may get unwanted results but try to look for cc or gcc.
But it is most probably not installed as it should usually be put inside a common path...

And Wlaw - politeness dictates that you start your own thread - not hijack someone else's.

You will notice that I have now split your thread off.

I am sorry ! I am not intended to do it ! Just by mistake and this forum doesn't provide the kill post function !



By the way,now I've got another problem after installing the compiler !
I type make install by root and got the following in red !


See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c libpspell.la /usr/local/
lib/libpspell.la
libtool: install: warning: relinking `libpspell.la'
(cd /programs/aspell/aspell-0.50.5/lib; /bin/sh ../libtool --mode=relink g++ -g
-O2 -o libpspell.la -rpath /usr/local/lib -version-info 15:3:0 dummy.lo libaspe
ll.la )
mv: can't stat source libpspell.so.15.0.3
libtool: install: error: relink `libpspell.la' with the above command before ins
talling it
make[2]: *** [install-libLTLIBRARIES] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/programs/aspell/aspell-0.50.5/lib'
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/programs/aspell/aspell-0.50.5/lib'
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

When building from source you will not only need the rpm packages that the program you're building depends on but their -devel companion packages as well. As far as I can see, Redhat 9 comes with pspell-0.12.2-16.i386.rpm as its pspell package. You will need to install pspell-devel-0.12.2-16.i386.rpm as well in order to build software that depends on pspell. The same goes for most rpm packages.
