installation problems xlslib for use with codeblocks under Linux Mint


Hi,
I'm an old XP-user who installed Linux Mint beside XP and would like to do some C++ development on Linux with CodeBlocks.The first application I want to write should be able to read/write contents from and to an xls-file (I want to convert an application I wrote with Excel macro's and VBA).
I found xlslib on sourceforge, downloaded it, and started the installation (in a terminal: "./configure" followed by "make" and "make install").
From the obtained output (see below) I deduce there is a problem when executing "make" and "make install". I don't find an issue, can anyone help me?
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Congratulations, your xlslib 2.4.0 is configured now.
You can now build and install xlslib using the Makefile, by calling

$ make

Before running

$ make install

you may wish to test the newly built binary by running

$ make check

Any unacceptable mistakes will be reported and cause the 'check' run to abort.

Welcome to LQ.

Which version of "Linux Mint" are you using ?
a) $ uname -m
b) $ cat /etc/issue

``xlslib 2.4.0´´ :
$ unzip xlslib-package-2.4.0.zip
$ cd xlslib/xlslib/
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

I have no "make issues", see the attached `make__log.txt.gz´,
attached as make__log.txt.gz.txt

Testing xlslib with Ubuntu 14.04, 32bits and 64bits :

It appears that `xlslib´ will choke with the {Mint, Ubuntu}
supplied compilers g++, versions 4.6 .. 4.8 .

Solution : $ sudo apt-get install g++-4.4

xlslib/ :
$ export CC=gcc-4.4 CXX=g++-4.4 && ./configure && make

hi knudfl,
First, thank you for your help!
1)The linux version is linux mint 17 Qiana :
w-desktop xlslib # uname -m
i686
w-desktop xlslib # cat /etc/issue
Linux Mint 17 Qiana \n \l

2)I executed your suggested
apt-get install g++-4.4
and
xlslib/ :
$ export CC=gcc-4.4 CXX=g++-4.4 && ./configure && make
and after that the make install.
I think it is OK now (see part of output of the last command beneath) :

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.

Thats OK . By errors, the word "Error" will appear.
