I recieve this error when trying to complie a program, here is a config.log if it is any use ful to help solv this nasty problem

Code:
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by Wine configure 20040716, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure

I don't know much about gcc but it appears from reading your 'Core Tests' output, that the gcc found is not the correct version. I would suggest uninstalling and reinstalling the gcc packages.

I have never used Slackware so I don't know the answer to your question.

My suggestion therefore is that you start a new thread in the 'Slackware' forum (found under the linux Distro forum) with a subject such as 'Removing and reinstalling gcc?'. You can always link to this thread when you get a reply.
