everything asks for MPFR, complete madness


whatever i'm triyng to install complains about libmpfr.so.1 which is not found even those which have nothing to do with mpfr
i can't install libmpfr.so.1 since mpfr itself also asks for libmpfr.so.1

what to do??????????????

Are you using the package manager to get it?

no, i'm installing from source, but i don't want to bother with apt-get because it depends on the internet, and if no internet, no install

You can still install *.deb packages with dpkg -i. You can search and download for packages here: http://packages.ubuntu.com/. (I guess you download software from another PC and then copy it to your Ubuntu box; then you won't need to expose your Ubuntu system to the internet). I personally think that installing from source is a harder way than installing packages (*.deb files or automatically with apt-get etc.).

BTW the package that contains the mentioned library is here, it seems that it's generally needed whenever you compile from source, yes, even when you want to compile libmpfr.

Does this help?

Example from Debian Lenny :
/usr/lib/gcc/i486-linux-gnu/4.3/crtbegin.o

You really should try using 'find' :
find /usr/lib/ -name crtbegin.o

And what strange gcc are you using, that can't
find it's own files ?
Or are you compiling buggy software ?

So which version of Ubuntu is it ? ? ...
or Ubuntu based OS ?

Please show the output of the command
dpkg --get-selections | grep gcc

And what are you trying to compile ? ?
The name and version of the software, please.
