error: "c compiler cannot create executables" when trying to run ./configure


Every time I try to install something from source, when I run ./configure, it will say:

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
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 have tried several different suggestions from other sites, but nothing seems to work.

Help!

Thanks

what were the suggestions?

Did you try to compile a program of your own?

test.c
Code:
#include <stdio.h>

main()
{
   printf("hello dude\n");
}
Code:
$ gcc test.c
$ ./a.out
