configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables


Hello:

All of the sudden, GCC is not working on my machine. I have recently configured (successfully) programs, and now it doesn't work. I am getting the following error:

Code:
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
(I will post config.log if you want)

Some pertinant env variables are:

Code:
[root@strimpglobal clamav-0.85.1]# echo $CFLAGS
                                                                                                                                                             
[root@strimpglobal clamav-0.85.1]# echo $LDFLAGS
                                                                                                                                                             
[root@strimpglobal clamav-0.85.1]# echo $CC
                                                                                                                                                             
[root@strimpglobal clamav-0.85.1]#
I found a post that "resolves" this issue, but I can't quite apply it to my situation. Maybe someone can help translate? Thank you VERY MUCH!!

check your path

last time i got this error was because gcc was incorrectly installed and couldent
preform any linking to the general librarys contained in glibc

check your paths and try reinstalling glibc


that or maybe your kernel headers got uninstalled somehow

HI:

I reinstalled GCC and glibc using webmin (therefore assuming all paths are correct). What paths do you suggest I check? With which commands?

Thanks!
