configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables


Hello,

i have a problem when installing apache, i get the following error configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables

At first there was no C-compiler installed on my redhat 9
So I installed the following packages

binutils-2.15-1.i386.rpm
libgcc-3.3.3-1.i386.rpm
cpp-3.3.3-1.i386.rpm
gcc-3.3.3-1.i386.rpm

all succeeded

what's going wrong here?
thx in advance


below is the config.log

What do you get if you just ionvoke gcc from the command-line?

gcc -v


Cheers,

Excellent - so we know the install went well

Now check whether you have any CPPFLAGS defined before
configure runs.
env | grep FLAG

One thing I noticed lately is that if a build-script assumes a
newer version of gcc it will configure will fail with the same
warning ... specifically what I had happened was failing when
using the mtune=pentium4 flag. Replaced mtune with mcpu and
all went well.

Cheers,
Tink
