snort compile errors "C compiler cannot create executables"


Hi,

I just download the latest version of snort on RedHat 73. but get these compile errors.

[root@c3po snort-2.0.0]# ./configure
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 style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
[root@c3po snort-2.0.0]#


Can anyone tell me what more packages are needed? I have searched and installed the c compilers available.

regards,
Krishna

This link is so good that I don't even bother writing anything myself:
http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-help/2002-07/msg00295.html

Tip: Take your error messages (from anywhere in a Linux system) and enter them as a phrase in Google. Almost guaranteed to succeed.

Good luck!
Martin
