C compiler fails when running the configure command


Dear Everyone,

I am currently trying to install Postgresql and Apache on my Red Hat Linux 8 system.

Unfortunately whenever I use the configure command I get an error related to my c compiler (please see the listing below). If anybody has any suggestions on how this can be fixed they will be greatly appreciated:

./configure --with-java --with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl --enable-debug
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking which template to use... linux
checking whether to build with 64-bit integer date/time support... no
checking whether to build with recode support... no
checking whether NLS is wanted... no
checking for default port number... 5432
checking for default soft limit on number of connections... 32
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables

Thanks for your help

Regards

David

More information

kev82,

My configure file looks like this:

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

It was created by PostgreSQL configure 7.3.2, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.53. Invocation command line was

$ ./configure --with-java --with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl --enable-debug

find / 2>/dev/null | grep cc1
