Cannot compile... period.


Hi all.
I'm new to Debian, I just installed it (well, I installed Morphix, debian based distro). And want to compile something.
Actually, to be specific, multires.

I tries ./configure and it said: no GCC. I thought that's easy fixed with debian. I typed apt-get install gcc
It worked but when I try to compile it says Found GCC but then it gives me an error message saying: Cannot start GCC or something similar.
How do I fix that?

It says:

Checking for gcc ... gcc
Checking wether the C compiler (gcc) works ... no
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C compiler cannot creat executable.


That's it. No compiling for me.

Hmmm ...

I've seen an error like that one when
adding CPPFLAGS once ...

Check your environment variables.

Cheers,

maybe you don't have any of your libc headers
installed? the development packages.
