yeah I have apt installed... been using it all the time, and this is the first time that I have to install from source...
Hmmm strange, I'm pretty sure that I have gcc, etc installed tho... here's part of my package list..
ii g++-3.2 3.2.3-0pre6 The GNU C++ compiler
ii gaim 0.81-3 multi-protocol instant messaging client
ii galeon 1.3.11a-1.0.li GNOME web browser for advanced users
ii gcc 3.2.3-0 The GNU C compiler.
ii gcc-3.0-base 3.0.4-7 The GNU Compiler Collection (base package).
ii gcc-3.2 3.2.3-0pre6 The GNU C compiler
ii gcc-3.2-base 3.2.3-0pre6 The GNU Compiler Collection (base package)
ii gcc-3.3-base 3.3.4-6sarge1 The GNU Compiler Collection (base package)
the "ii" corresponds to installed right? I don't get it why it's not found during ./configure
