No Suggestions?

Nobody can help me out here?

All I really need to do is clip off some of the beginning and end of some WAV audio files before I burn them to a CD. Audacity sounded like a useful audio editing tool (and it requires the software I'm having trouble with), but if I can't work this out can anyone suggest another tool for editing audio?



here is the end of the config.log file for wxwidgets....
configure:9254: gcc -E conftest.c >/dev/null 2>conftest.out
configure:9314: checking whether gcc needs -traditional
configure:9375: checking for c++
configure:9375: checking for g++
configure:9375: checking for gcc
configure:9407: checking whether the C++ compiler (gcc ) works
configure:9423: gcc -o conftest conftest.C 1>&5
gcc: installation problem, cannot exec `cc1plus': No such file or directory
configure: failed program was:

#line 9418 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"

int main(){return(0);}
